My System Specs

You can do option 2 without getting a "lesser" GPU. I wouldn't consider a GTX 660 Ti / HD 7950 "lesser", for example. MSI have good quality overclocking boards geared towards gaming (less "hardcore" features that most people never use) for great prices. Take, for example, their Z77A-G43 for $99 before rebate. Pair that with a ~$300 GTX 660 Ti / HD 7950 and that brings you to ~$400 before taxes. Sell your current board and your GPU and you're well within budget for a sweet 1080p gaming rig.
