The 7970 is a lot faster than the 5770, but if the 5770 runs what you want at 40+ fps, no need to upgrade. The 7970 will enable you to reach higher framerates with higher quality. If you are not running things at the highest settings and want to, upgrading will do that for you.

7970 will max out pretty much all the games (settings and frames) at that resolution. only games it may have a bit trouble with are bf3 and metro 2033 with everything at the highest settings it'll hiccup to around 40 frames :)
