I would suggest at least a 7800GT, either go with the stock cooling or watercooling. For CPU I would get an Opteron 170 or a San Diego core 3700+.

I do have a AMD X2 3800+ and also a 7800 GT .....im shopping around trying to find the best aftermarket Heatsink for the cpu and some kind of cooler for the video card. Like to get input from you guys here then have to read in a magazine that they give some heatsink a 9 out of 10.

Thermaltake silent tower

Cheap but has the same exact cooling power as any 70 dollar heatsink out there. And you can put up to 2 fans. Keeps my CPU almost 10 degrees celcius cooler then with the stock heatsink.
