No, that board is still fine. Both processors there are socket 939, any 939 processor will work with that mboard. Nice build btw, im jealous.

So 2 6800gs are cheaper than one 7800gt???

Of course it's good, it's very good. But if you have the money to upgrade your processor, just keep the processor the way it is and upgrade the 6800GS to a 7800gt.

Yes, you shouldn't have problems with it. If it comes to it, you can overclock the 3800+ to 4200+ speeds, as far as I know.
