would it be worth selling off the gts and getting this card or stepping up ?

In my opinion, going from GTS to HD3870 X2 is not a good upgrade. GTS 512MB does outperform it in some games, and don't forget the fact that there are many games that are not very well optimized for dual-GPU

exactly, wait for the GTX before you upgrade

Going from an 8800GTS 512mb is only a slight upgrade...I mean there's nothing your GPU can't handle anyway except for Crysis at very high, which the x2 can't do either unless you are happy with 30ish fps
