i was thinking about switching the GPU to gtx 770, will that do better without occasional drops?

FOr ultra settings with a single 7870, no. But with two, yes.

It's really the game that causes the drops. I would switch to a single 770 or 280x rather than two 7870s. It will be cooler solution.

dont get a 7870 xfire, get a single r9 280x, with the mantle api on bf4, the game will play very well.

Yes, it should if you get a 770. Do not get a 280x because the price has inflated too much and mantle will only help with CPU bottle necking.

Hits 70 every now and then. DayZ is normally the only thing that brings it that high. Standalone is the only thing that pushes it atm.

That is crazy low. The 770 at 100% load is safe to 95c. Most people's generally run between 70-80c under normal gaming load, which is perfectly fine.

Well I only game for about 45 min at a time probably why. Or maybe my temp program is inaccurate.
