Because of this, I have come up with these options. What do you guys think I should do: Either option A,B, C, or D, and why? I will count up the votes and whichever one gets the most I will probably buy. I will also take into the consideration the other posts too but they will have a little less consideration. This should be my final decision.

Option A
I will get these new parts;
CPU: Upgrade to a i5 3570k (Overclock it to 4.5 GHz)
GPU: Gigabyte Windforce 7950 (Overclock it to 1.15 GHz)
Motherboard: MSI Z77 GD65
Price: $640 but at black Friday I think It will be at most $500.
Option B
Same as Option A BUT instead of a 7950, I will buy another 6970.
Price: $512 but it should be at most $400 on black Friday I think.
Option C
I shall get these new parts;
Monitor: Buy 2 of these; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008ABO0P2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER and run a three monitor setup
GPU: Gigabyte 7950 (Overclock it to 1.15 GHz)
Price: $578, should be about $480 max on Black friday
Option D
Same as option C BUT instead of 7950, I'll get a 6970 to crossfire with the one I already have.

With a little know how you could have that 3570k Running from between 5ghz and 5.5ghz..

See top link in my Sig.. 3570k is the current best Gaming Cpu on the market... Fastest 4 cores out there and that is what most games use....

Also AMD is a Sinking Ship id get off the boat before you get pulled under.. Bull Dozer was such a failure it has put AMD in Huge Dept that Even the great Performance of the HD7000 series can not get them out of..
They have no money for R&D or to pay the top engineer's..
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
AMD today announced that revenue for the third quarter ended September 29, 2012 is expected to decrease approximately 10 percent sequentially. The company previously forecasted third quarter 2012 revenue to decrease 1 percent, plus or minus 3 percent, sequentially. The lower than anticipated preliminary revenue results are primarily due to weaker than expected demand across all product lines caused by the challenging macroeconomic environment.

The company now expects third quarter gross margin to be approximately 31 percent; less than the previous expectation of approximately 44 percent primarily due to an inventory write-down of approximately $100 million due to lower anticipated future demand for certain products.
Third quarter gross margin was also negatively impacted by weaker than expected demand, which contributed to lower than anticipated average selling prices (ASPs) for the company's Computing Solutions Group products and lower than expected utilization of its back-end manufacturing facilities.

Operating expenses for the third quarter are expected to decline approximately 7 percent sequentially as a result of tightly controlled expenses in the quarter.

AMD will report third quarter 2012 results after market close on Thursday, October 18, 2012. AMD will hold a conference call for the financial community at 2:00 p.m. PT (5:00 p.m. ET) that day to discuss third quarter financial results and to provide information regarding expected fourth quarter results.

I'll toss another vote in, I would say its worth it. The power difference won't be huge most of the time but should be very noticable in games that use the cpu more like MMO's.
