Somewhere around there. I would say 3GHz, if you're lucky.

Wouldn't this board be a bit better, with not much of an increase in price?
Foxconn N570SM2AA-8EKRS2H SKT AM2 nForce 570 SLI SATAII 7.1audio ATX 42.11/49.48

I'm not sure of Foxconn is a good company or not. You could go with this Asus, but is more expensive at 62.20/73.09.
ASUS M2N-SLI DELUXE Socket AM2 nvidia 570SLi 7.1channel audio ATX

b1gapl what do you think?

Actually yes...the 570 and 590 chipsets, are probably the best for AM2 overclocking.
