Hi guys, need some advice. Been itching to upgrade and I think it might be time if it's worth it. My current setup is 3 Samgsung SyncMaster 2253LW's, the bezels on these are pretty large, nearly 2 inches when butted up together. They're 1650x1050 22" monitors. They are being pushed by a GTX 670 4GB superclocked version. AMD FX 8-Core FX 8320.

I would really like to upgrade to a couple 1080 monitors like thesehttp://www.amazon.com/Dell-UltraSharp-U2414H-23-8-Monitor/dp/B00GTV05XG/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER they have a super small bezel and they're 24". My monitor stand is an Ergotron Triple Monitor stand which support up to 3 22" or 23" monitors. Those monitors that i've mentioned are 24" monitors, so they wont fit without extending the bar with one of these http://www.amazon.com/Extender-Upgrade-Black-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B000SUM16S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417256444&sr=8-1&keywords=97-447-200

Will my setup push those monitors ok? Will i benefit more from a GPU or CPU upgrade if it wont push them. Think it would be worth all the hassle of buying a new stand, say this one http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_5?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1417295086&sr=1-5&keywords=triple+monitor+stand to fit the new monitors? If i do go the new monitors and new stand route, think there's a market for my old setup? I'm also still using a Digital TH2Go since I've had one forever. My video card can do surround without it but i have it so i've been using it. Is there any benefit to using one of these still over nVidia's Surround? Or should i try selling that too? Thanks for reading this somewhat lengthy post.

Ugh.. to throw in an extra variable, i'm also considering scrapping the whole thing in favor of one of these http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JR6GCZA/ref=psdc_1292115011_t2_B00JR6GBHO LG UM95 34UM95 34-Inch 21:9 3440x1440. Anyone care to chime in about going from 3x1 to a single 21:9 ?
