XT to T2i or 60D?

I have gone through many discussions but could not find one that matches my situation. If you think I am opening a duplicate thread, please point me to earlier one.

Photography is hobby, I like to shoot everything that attracts me.

I have been using Canon Rebel XT (350D) for the last three years. Recently I started experiencing some issues with my camera, so I decided to upgrade.

I have all canon mount lenses, so I will stick to canon.

I am very happy with my following lenses –
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Tokina 11mm - 16mm F/2.8 ATX Pro DX
Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro D macro

OK with Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

Not happy with Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD

I mentioned the lenses above just to give an idea about the quality I am looking for. Also here is my flickr photostream link - http://www.flickr.com/photos/snehansuroy/

I have a budget of approximate 1K, can go little over it.

I plan to buy a better telephoto and then better standard zoom lens in near future.

The cameras that are in mind – Canon T2i, 60D

Should I go for 60D? Or should I buy T2i and save money for the lenses I want to buy?

I am looking forward to your expert advices.

Thanks a lot in advance.
