Help picking next component

Well I feel like i need to upgrade something, I am stuck on what to purchase though. I have done a little research and its down to 3 items

1. ARCTIC COOLING ACCEL-X3 Fluid Dynamic VGA Cooler
I thought about getting the cooler and overclocking the poweracolor 7870 that i have.

2. Purchase another powercolor 7870 and run a crossfire setup, Mostly to get better benchmarks. (I could not find any really clear details about running a X16,X4 Setup

3. Purchase a new CPU possibly the amd 8350.

  1. New CPU I think, the 8350 is a good choice.
  2. Ya I'm wondering what will have the best increase in performance
  3. For RAM your good, for the GPU you are good for the time being. PSU is a bit overkill to be honest and you are running the OS off an SSD, so thats all good.
    Only weak link is your low end processor.
