Nvidia Sli questions


I currently have a GTX 460 and would like to upgrade as it's still the bottleneck in my i7 system.

I will need to buy a new motherboard so would like recommendations for them but my main question is

Am I better buying another GTX460 and setting up in sli or would I be better off replacing my card with a new (faster) one (bearing in mind I'd have to buy a new mobo aswell)
