I'm wanting to upgrade my video card to one suitable to playing skyrim. I'm looking from on in the range of $70~$100 max , I'm getting a corsair 500W psu along side it. I dont want something to play it on ultra graphics just something on medium ~ high graphics. If someone could fill me in I'd appreciate it.

Currently im looking at :

Best of what you listed is the HD 6670, fair enough to play @ high settings if you have a strong CPU, Skyrim mainly depends on CPU not GPU, Also this is pretty good

At 100 dollars you are sometimes able to find a 6770 or a 5770 which are descent budget graphic cards. They usualy seel for around $110 however u can someimtes find them for $100. If u can find one of tehm for $100 it will be the best graphics card for teh pricerange.

For what it's worth, I have this 6670 card which I got for $74.99US after a rebate.

I have it running at near 6770 levels. It is also a very quiet card even with the dual fans. The included software makes it easy to over-clock.

Also canyourunit.com said everything but my video card needs to be upgraded. I can post the results if you want. Also what is it to rebate something, I don't understand when people say rebate.

You'll be fine with the game @ high settings.

The mail-in rebate (MIR) is the most common. A MIR entitles the buyer to mail in a coupon, a receipt and barcode in order to receive a check for a particular amount, depending on the particular product, time, and often place of purchase. Rebates are offered by either the retailer or the manufacturer of the chosen product.
