Is it worth the upgrade for crossfire? (x16, x4 to x16, x16/x8)

Currently, I'm running 2 x HD 6850 IceQ ( in crossfire on a Gigabyte GA 970 UD3+ ( motherboard. I understand I'm running in an x16, x4 configuration due to the motherboard at the moment, and I was wondering if it would be worth the upgrade to ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X (, ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX (, or just stick with my current mobo if the increase won't be significant. Also, if there are other things that anyone thinks would justify an upgrade to a different motherboard, mention those as well. Thanks in advance!
