Well there is NO GUARANTEE that any chip you buy will DEFINITELY hit 4GHz. Keep that in mind, it's just the luck of the draw.

As for what I'd recommend, first and foremost make sure the power supply you buy is a good one. Make sure it has the +12v on a SINGLE RAIL. There's been lots of issues with multiple rails and this motherboard. PC Power & Cooling, Corsair, Seasonic, Enermax all make good quality units.

Then of course you'll need video cards, bare minimum I'd go with is 4850, but only if you can get them REALLY cheap, otherwise 4870/4890, once again dependent on price.

Then make sure you get a case with good airflow. Something like an Antec 900, Coolermaster 590/690, Thermaltake Armor, etc.

I'd recommend a sound card too. No matter how good the onboard might be, a separate sound card will ALWAYS sound better.

Then with all that power you'll need a monitor that big enough for the resolutions you'd like to run, minimum of a 22" (well 21.x" if it's 1080p).

Then make sure you get GOOD ram thats rated really highly so you can get the most out of it, it doesn't need to have the big ol heatsinks like the OC reapers or anything. As long as they have a heat spreader, they should be OK.

And then of course you'll need a good CPU cooler like an Scythe Mugen 2, Xigmatek S1283 or on the more expensive side the Prolimatech Megahalem. This is the reason you want low profile RAM. If you have those big honkin heat sinks on top like the reapers, yo9u wont be able to get a GOOD CPU cooler on there.

Thats all on the brain at the moment, I'm sure I'll think of something later.

Get the newer C3 stepping. The current C2 stepping is harder to get to 4GHz stable on air for most people.

On a separate note are there any chipset drivers for this board and win7?

Go here: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx

Then click on:
-> Motherboard/Integrated Video Drivers
-> Individual Drivers (Motherboard/Chipset)
-> Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit

There is the Southbridge driver and the optional AHCI/RAID drivers.
