what muscle groups to be worked together?
Alright im thinking about going on a new workout plan, following the "UNoffical How to Bulk thread and sample diet" posted on the diet forum, including cardio and all. Im thinking about lifting 4 days with 3 days of cardio on the rest days. Im just confued on what muscle groups should be worked out together on lifting days.

if your set on doing muscle groups together id say chest/tris, back/bis, shoulders, and legs. Otherwise id say do something like this:
you could combine legs with another bodypart, but many people recommend training legs by themselves

Since I would probally use bench press on chest day and military press on shoulder day, wouldnt that be hard on my Tricepts, or would it matter?

It shouldnt be. If you find that it is, space out your workouts better

so how about
would one of those be better or worse? I just dont want to put my tricepts through too much strain through the week.

That looks good since I wouldn't recommend working shoulders and chest together. However I would simply change the order so you go legs after chest, ie.
To tweak a bit further though - the reason chest & tris are together is that tris are warmed up well after chest. For the same reason I would put bis with back. That would leave shoulders on their own. So to counter that put calves there (and legs day focus on quads and hams). The result:
day2: quads & hams (throw in some abs perhaps)
day4: shoulders/calves (perhaps some abs so they are hit twice)
