I can only second what other posters have said.
While the photograph really represent the key factor in taking beautiful pictures, getting a 5DII was the second smartest decision I have ever done for my photography. Like you I mostly take pictures of landscapes and portraits. The 5DII has significantly help me improved my photography, or maybe it has helped me love photography even more, nonetheless I have 0 buyer's remorse.
Then on my #1 best decision, the tripod! I agree with ronderick. Investing in a good tripod combo, with a good head would be a wise decision.
Last year I was faced with that decision. I had a manfrotto tripod which was great and at 300$ (including the head) it was doing an ok job. However, it was big, a bit awkward and I really wasn't enjoying the exercise of both carrying and using it.
I finally decided a worthy tripod combo was worth it. You see, I moved to New Zealand, and loving the outdoors I wanted a tripod that was light, solid and above all else that gave me the flexibility I needed for landscape photography. I bit the bullet and purchased a gitzo Series 1 tripod the 1541T and got a Markins Q3T to complement it. the combo weights in at 1.25kg. I also purchased a kirk L plate. This setup helped me improving my landscape photography and above all else made the usage of my tripod a pleasant experience. It's not cheap, the entire setup set me 1100$. Again I have no regrets.
Invest wisely in your equipement, but again as many have said, the internet is your friend, sell it, someone will always be interested.
