those processors dont come with integrated graphics, they are not like sandy bridge processors.
usually the motherboards have intergrated graphics, but integrated graphics are not good for gaming in the first place.
if you want to game then get a discrete gpu.
if you want to use a processor that is am3 that support ddr2, you will have to get an am2, am2+ and am3 combo mobo like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
but id suggest just going with ddr3 and an atx mobo.
the best cpu for overclocking as for quadcores are the amd 955 black edition and higher.

if you use an i3 processor with a discrete graphics card, you wont be using its integrated graphics in the first place.
a 955 is better because it is a quad core instead of an i3 which is a dual core with hyperthreading.
please read up on hyperthreading.
if you want to game, then you shouldnt be using integrated graphics.

Putting DDR2 on a 955 is like installing a VW motor in a Porshe. Justs sayin'....
