I would say that it is worth it to change from a GTS450 SLi to a GTX570. To me a single powerful card is always better than 2 cards that each is 1/2 as powerful.

If for any reason you're having any annoyance with SLI, then upgrade... otherwise, hold off until the 28nm GPUs come out at the end of the year!!!!

+1 for waiting since you have a four hundred series sli. if you had a two hundred series like i do that could be different. but you have direct x11, along with an sli that already comes close to a five seventy. so keep them
