Save your money and get some watercooling or something.

6970's in Quad CF isn't really worth it for reasons others have stated, the CF 6970's would be a decent upgrade from 470's but you should remember that the 7900 series should be out by the end of Q1/2012so it might be better to just sit on what you have till then.
