Default Thinking About Opteron 165

Hey i was thinking about getting the 3800 x2, but now that the new opterons have come out i think i might want to get a 165, especially becuase i can get one cheaper than an x2. my main question is, will the msi neo4 platnium mb be able to handle oc'ing it, or should i spend the money i save on the 165 to get a better board that can overclock it better, such as a dfi board. i havnt built the system yet, so i can change anything i need to. in case your wondering, this is the rest of the specs i plan on getting:
XFX 7800GT
Antec Performance TX1050-500W
OCZ 2GB Platnium
WD 250GB Hard Drive
MSI Neo4 Platnium (or another better board for the 165)
Zalman CNPS9500 LED

I would recommend the DFI nF4 Ultra-D. It is an amazing overclocker. I don't think you'll find a better board that that one.
