Default Need Opinions on Upgrades

I was planning to get a gtx 470 earlier today but then I was checking out prices and now im unsure. I'm planning to buy a new graphics card either tomorrow or on wednesday and a new motherboard next week. Here are my two possible upgrades:

Option 1:
eVGA GTX 480
$449.99 CAD

eVGA SLI LE Refurbished (Motherboard+backplate only, 30 day warranty)
$113.50

Total:
$563.50

Option 2:
eVGA GTX 470 Superclocked
$343.99

eVGA 3x SLI (new)
$219.99

Total:
$563.98

The only thing thats keeping me from going with the first option is the 30 day warranty. I have tons of extras from my current motherboard that I can still use after I build my dad a computer with it. Which one would you go for and why?
