If You're already hit capped go with http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48390
It has a red socket so You'll probably get the socket bonus from a Str or ArPen gem so that leaves it just 9 Str behind. You'll also lose a little crit (0.15%) but You'll get some really nice ArPen and possibly the set bonus.

-Start off by changing your meta to the relentless earthseige diamond.
-Replace the blue gem in your chest with a red one(str/arp)
-Replace the blue gem in your boots with a nightmare tear
-Enchant your chest with 10 stats
-Helm chant(50ap,20crit) from ebon blade
Using the relentless meta, makes it so you only need one gem to meet your meta requirement. The nightmare tear counts as one of each color, so if fills that need. Always try to use that gem wherever you will get the best socket bonus. In your case, the hit socket bonuses you have are whats keeping youover the hit cap, so i kept them.
As far as arp or str, most
arms warriors go for arp
. However, since you dont have an arp trinket, im not sure what advice to give you(usually fury). According to the spreadsheet, your better off socketing for strength, but that will change as your gear gets better, and you get more passive arp.
As for now, i would go ahead and use arp gems whenever you get an upgrade(your new helm), since you will prolly be replacing alot in the future. Try to get into naxx and get a grim toll, that will give you an arp trinket, and some hit rating. This way, you dont have to completely regem again when you get better gear.
Here is the spreadsheet, if you have excel07, or can get it easily, i recommend using it.http://elitistjerks.com/f81/t37462-warrior_dps_calculation_spreadsheet/
If you cant figure out how to get it to work, just let me know and ill show the ins and outs.
