The passwords to log into grid control will be the 'new' passwords if you use SYS or SYSTEM to log in.

Are you referring to the Preferred Credentials that might be stored in the repository?  If you have saved passwords for the database in question then these will need to be updated after you change the passwords.

Aside from Preferred Credentials, as slightwv said, there will be no problems.
The agent used by Grid usually connects using DBSNMP user.

There will be NO effect on Grid Control if you change your SYS and SYSTEM passwords.
