agreed oc the cpu should hit at least 4.0 on a decent air cooler.

and then either crossfire your 6870 with another 6870 or sell it you might get 100 bucks for it, I've seen them new on sale for like $120 recently.
if you decide to sell you could go with a 7950 or a 660 on the cheaper side if you watch some sales or do some price matching.

either way id keep the 1366 over a new amd setup as the oc'd performance is still there.
