Heavy deadlifts, worth it in the long run?

I got my deadlifts up to 500 lbs 4x4. Physically i feel good but i am starting to wonder if it is worth pushing for 600+, seems like even with good form eventually something will have to give. I don't compete, i just like the high of setting pr's and my back developement.
