Default What's a good upgrade from my gtx 570?

With the current system that I have(see below) what would be a good upgrade from my current gtx 570? I have a budget of $300. I am thinking on selling my gtx 570 after for around $150-200.

Any thoughts?

PS: ATI or Nvidia, doesn't really matter to me.

forget SLI with your power supply,i think 600w is too short for 500 series SLI'd cards all you can have is another GPU (single)

so,yes ,you must sell it and well ,have a 670 ,try to find some for 500 dollars,if you see the other;)

680 too expensive for you so yes,and if you can't have a 670,get a 660ti...

No, I was thinking of a $300 budget including what I get back from selling my gtx570, and no I don't plan on getting another gtx570. I am aware that a SLI set up will need a new PSU. Any other advice/ideas?

Gtx570 still kicks ass. I would wait for the next gen in a year I can't imagine it being worth while at this point in time to sell it for a marginally/maybe not even noticably better graphics card.

Unless you plan on a driving either a 144Hz 1080p monitor or a 1440p monitor....I would hold off another gen (and start saving your cash as 3 bills wont be enough). When the next gens hit...upgrade then. You got plenty of power for 1080p / 1200p with your 570.

What about this?

Amazon.com: Used and New: EVGA GeForce GTX670 2048MB GDDR5 256bit, 2x Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, DP, 4-Way SLI Ready Graphics Card (02G-P4-2670-KR)

Do you guys think it's worth it?

That is definitely an upgrade, but I don't know how major. Heres a comparison.
