I found this earlier, I hope it helps. I think you are ok at 3.8.

Umm...he's running a 27% overclock. At equal clocks, there's very little difference among motherboards, so what are you basing that statement on?

Yeah.. Motherboards make such slight differences they are usually unnoticable.. Along with that though, At 3.8 you still are bottlenecking the 6800GS, but it doesnt matter. Even if you had your processor at 4.2 you would see maybe a 1-5 fps difference (or slightly more).

Let me give you some advice just forget that the word "Bottleneck" even exists.
