Don't bother right now. Get a new monitor and enjoy.
I have both a Bulldozer and Ivy build. If you plan on playing at that resolution then yes by all means, otherwise buy some games to go with a new 1080p monitor.
Yeah, I got the AMD 3-game pack (Far Cry 3, Hitman Absolution and Sleeping Dogs). I can run Far Cry 3 on all high settings with an average FPS of 60. The thing is, games are playable (Planetside 2 is barely, my fps drops in the high 20's in big hotspots ;_;), but I upgraded in hopes that I could record gameplay in these games smoothly.
