Definatly keep the 960 cpu and overclock it.
HD 7970: Bulldozer vs. Sandy Bridge vs. Nehalem Review | techPowerUp

Crossfiring 6870s, most games that I have do ok with it but the ones that don't are BF3, mafia II and cod black ops.

Some games that I have that work well with 6870s xfire are Crysis 2, bfbc2, sniper elite v2.

I'd also suggest a 7950/70, the problem with 6870s is 1GB ram.
