If you want the 24-70L equivalent FoV, the 17-55 is better. If you like the 24-70L FoV on crop, then by all means go for it.
Agree, the 24-70 is not a good choice on a 450D, heavy, bulky, big hood etc. EFS lenses like 17-55 or 15-85 would be better choices. Otherwise stay with your kit lens.

Sorry OT. What did you not like about the AFS 24-70? I think it is a better lens than the 24-70L.
