I can't see that upgrading the CPU would have any great benefit for gaming.

Your video card needs about 200 watts I believe. Do you already have a PSU that could handle two of them?

I think it would be difficult to beat 2x 6950 for $200. That would be something like 25 GP/s and 89.6 GT/s doubled up. So, in the same ballpark as a single Radeon R9 290 (not yet available).
