Depends. A good stepping 165 can hit 3.0, and the 170 does not get much higher, if any. Either will overclock just fine, esp. in that DFI Lanparty Ultra D board. If you have some budget left, invest it in a good aftermarket cooler.

Thus, I'd get the 165 + a good aftermarket cooler.

There are the big Noctua (can't find in stock)

Oh, and this one:

Scythe SCINF-1000 120mm CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink - Retail $57.99

NICE sale on the BT though:
Thermaltake Big Typhoon CL-P0114 120mm Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail
$39.99 and free shipping.

And this Thermalright also is very good, but you need to add your own fan:
Thermalright SI-128 - Athlon 64 & Pentium 4 S775 $49.99

And the new version of the Big Typhoon:
Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX 5 in 1 CPU Cooler w/ Heatpipe Cooling Technology (CL-P0310) $52.95

These are all good.
