Should I continue with SLI?

Hello, I'm ready to upgrade the video cards on my system and was wondering if I would be happy with just a single GTX560 or do I want to keep the SLI setup and go with 2 GTX 550 Ti. The price would about the same but since my system is so old (4+ years) I'm also wanting to know if I should be looking at cards older than the 550 or 560 cards. Its going to be 6 months+ before I can build a new system and am wanting to play Diablo 3 when it comes out.

My current specs:
Win 7 ultra
Asus M2n-SLI Deluxe
Athlon 64 X2 Am2+ 6000
CoolMax CUG-700B
Seagate 320 sata 3 HHD
2 x Evga GTS 8600

If you can really get two 550Ti's for the price of a GTX 560 then go for it. The SLI setup would certainly be faster and should put you into the roughly GTX 570/580 territory. If howevery you end up close to $300 keep in mind that you can get a GTX 570 for that price which will give guaranteed performance without having to worry about SLI scaling or all the extra heat/power requirements of an SLI setup.
