hmm, well the next progressive step would be to more to a 2011 setup, as in a 3960X and a rampage IV, but thats if you want to throw money at a problem not to many of us suffer, but your case is a little special, granted. really you would need to look into 7970 scaling, and see if crossfire will really give you what you need and if thats the case, bump the clocks on the 980 and swap in another card along side the one you have.
done think there is a huge performance difference going to a 2011 setup, but it is newer tech.

How much CPU is being used during a BF3 battle / firefight??? What settings do you have BF3 on?
my i5-750 @4GHz with a single GTX570 runs BF3 on HIGH and gets 60fps in fire fights NO WORRIES, and with a 2nd GTX570 for some SLI action gets that on Ultra.
Either your drivers are letting you down or there is another problem. a HD7970 should be smashing BF3!!!

If your only getting ~60 and less frames a sec and not pushing 80%+ on the CPU the CPU is not your issue.
I think its ram and graphics more than anything else.
For the RE4 its a x79 chipset, so 2011 socket, so you'd want a 3930X...
I go another 7970 before anything else to make sure, then look at an ssd before going any further, atleast those things can be moved across to your new system when you build it.

12gb should be ok, i get along fine with a set of 6gb mushkins @ 6-6-6-24/1600 so lower timings and higher mhz = better performance.
i think another 7970 coupled with maybe a decent cooler if your overclocking the 980 would go a long way. a slight tweak OC to get it over stock wouldnt hurt but i'd be looking at graphics cards with a large amount of vram and high clocks.
i7 2700k? hmmm the high end asrocks might be ok, the extreme4 would be ok-ish, you may want o look at specialty boards and see if anything has come out that suits your needs. personally i wouldnt run multi gpu's on an 1156/z69 board.
