Default cpu?

i am currently in the process of building a new pc. i will be using it for gaming and also for doing work. basically games like doom3, bf2 and all the latest games coming out. as for the work side: word, excel, pp etc. anyway here is what i am looking at as for the cpu and vid card...

cpu: AMD Opteron 146 - 148 or AMD Athlon 64 3200 - 3700

what do you guys reccomend? i don't know how to overclock but i might have my friend do it for me.

vid card: eVGA 6800gs or the 7800gt

also, my friend was telling me that direct x v.10 is coming out in the near future and that the 7800gt will not be able to support these newer games...how true is this?

thanks for the help guys...
