I haven't been happy with an ati/amd video card since my 9800 pro and see far more complaints about crossfire than sli. So I'd say if you beleive nvidia that the next cycle will be out in the next couple of months and that you will be wanting to go with that once it's out, buy one 570 then sell it and upgrade to the next cycle and look at sli then. If your sure you will be able to resist temptation when the new cylce comes out then go with 570 sli.
But let us be honest for a second here,
Look at the release date fiasco's that have happened in the past. Look at where the Fab plants stand on their manufacturing process. I highly doubt we will see something so soon like Kepler. It is a valid option.
We really don't know if TSMC has their stuff together on this 28nm yet or not and I haven't seen any real leaks so...

Getting a 580 now, and then say a second one in a few months is very vaild.
