Hello,
I have put together a system with an i5 2500k processor. MSI GTX 560 Ti graphics, 4gb ram (1600), Asus p8p67 motherboard, Sata 2TB harddrive.

Would it be worth it to SLI my 560TI at this time?

Also I can get a MSI GeForce GTX 560 Twin Frozr II OC 810MHZ 1GB for a good price. It's not the TI model but will I notice a differance in SLI as the price is 50.00 cheaper?

What maximum display resolution do you use?

Were you intending to run the MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti and the MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC in 2-way SLI mode? It won't work because the the GPU is different between each of those cards. If you actually were to install an MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC along side your GeForce GTX 560 Ti all you'll end up with is two independent graphics cards.

A GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU must be paired with another GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU (graphics card manufacturer can be different).

Is your power supply unit able to handle two Geforce GTX 560 Ti in SLI mode if you decide to go that route?

Does your power supply have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps or greater?
