For the same amount of technology development, I think we could develop sensor systems within the solar system that will give us significant detail of nearby exoplanets. With that information we can decide at our leisure whether to visit and what kind of probes we should develop.

I'm all for conducting the searches and learning what we can with what we have, but my first priority would be mastering and colonizing our own solar system before we try to expand to others. If we do that, we'll have 90% of the infrastructure we need already in place.
