I am wanting to be able to only upgrade every two years. am I better off to sell my current 570 and buy a 770? or can another 570 help future proof my rig for a awhile. games coming in the next year will need more than 2gb of ram. please any and all advice with links to help will be greatly appreciated.

I would sell it and buy a 760 or 770. I believe you might hit the vram wall sooner than later, but that is just my opinion.

Sell your GTX 570: Reasons: GTX 770 is a single card solution, more power efficient, GPU BOOST 2.0, your PSU might be able to handle it (depends on the model CM PSU!!!!)

With your current card I'd advise to go the route of upgrading to the 770. Better performance and lower power consumption/heat. As for future proofing yourself in terms of vram usage in games the only way to go is the 780/titan.

The lowest amount of VRAM your Card is manufactured with , in this case 2GB, will be the limit. SLI doesn't add the number of RAM to double the available RAM.
