Guys, i kinda need help. I have no idea what to do, what to buy lol. Here are the options i have;

1) Keep my current motherboard (MSI P6NGM-L), get a new quad processor or any other decent cpu, power supply and a 5770 or something.

2) Get a GA-790XTA-UD4 and a Phenom II X2 550BE, a case and a 450watt power supply and add in like 4gb or 6gb of ram, get a really good cpu cooler to overclock the 550BE to 4.0ghz or something, and get the 5770. Maybe even 2x 5770.

People said i can unlock the 550BE or something, but i don't really get it or know what that is.
I'm at 1920x1080 resolution
Samsung 2333SW

Please, someone help me out.

Unlocking the 550 while common isn't guaranteed. It would seem the less costly path would be to get a quad for your current board and the 5770. Then you would have a bit more time to educate yourself as to which path you want to go for future upgrades.
