CPU: That 3800+ is a good choice, but if you're overclocking you should get an Opteron 165. They're starting to get rare (since AMD thinks the only people who should have Optys are OEMs), but you can still get them for reasonable prices from here.
Mobo: DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
Video Card: 7800GT or 7800GTX if you can afford it (just 1, you don't wanna waste money on SLI, high-end video cards are already bottlenecked by the CPU so putting 2 in won't help much)
