If you are looking for noticeable performance, you may not get much. Tom's have the 2x4870 & 570 at the same level in the hierarchy.

I quote from: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...
You can use this hierarchy to compare the pricing between two cards, to see which one is a better deal, and also to determine if an upgrade is worthwhile. I don’t recommend upgrading your graphics card unless the replacement card is at least three tiers higher. Otherwise, the upgrade is somewhat parallel and you may not notice a worthwhile difference in performance.
