...would you look at/care about SAT scores very much?

This entirely depends on the college. Scores matter a lot to some schools, not as much to others. Some don't require them at all.
In some cases, SAT scores are used as a basic screening device: they may eliminate you from consideration (barring an unusual "hook" you might have) if they aren't high enough.
Look for the mid-50% range of SAT scores for accepted students at the schools you wish to apply to, and be realistic about where you are likely to fit in. Many other things will matter in your application, but at most schools your testing is a factor that will be considered.

I'm not talking depending on the school...I'm talking YOU personally, do you think SAT scores should be an important factor?

yes I think that they should matter. College is an academic experience. SATs are a decent measure of your test-taking ability. GPAs vary so much between school that there needs to be a standardized test to determine whether or not someone can keep up in a rigorous academic environment
