...HD 7970? I will need to upgrade my CPU from i3-2120 to i5-3570 as well. When I Youtubed (HD) the difference in visual between the two GPU I can't really see the difference.

Essentially, the graphics quality will be the same, but with faster framerates. If you are not able to turn up all the graphics settings on your 7770, then the 7970 will allow maximum graphics.

Now, if you were to upgrade to an Nvidia card, like the GTX 670, that would allow you to enable Ambient Occlusion, which will produce a difference in the graphical quality throughout. Ambient Occlusion in Skyrim is not possible on an AMD card.
