That processor is going to be a bottleneck if you upgrade too much, and make sure the board can run pci-e in x16 for full performance.
Im running a 5870 with a q9550 on an asus board and i can't do ultra on BF3, its HARD to do ultra on BF3 with anything under a 6990 apparently. :/
But yeah, the processor will probable slow down your system a bit, and the board might not be able to handle an enormous card. Youll also need a
bigger power supply to run a bigger card.

That board is actually a pretty decent board, and the processor is alright as well, you should have no issues really if you want to get a powerful
card, make sure to get a power supply (i recommend the Corsair TX-750, thats what i use and its awesome). I recommend an aftermarket heatsink for the
processor as well, AMD's run really hot.
I recommend getting an AMD 6950 it would be cheaper than the nVidia equivialent, and run cooler
