Performance-wise, the best driver for the 7970 is 12.11 beta 4, but 13.1 (or 13.2 beta) drivers aren't much slower.

Download (but do not install) the latest drivers from AMD. Uninstall your existing drivers. Shut down, turn your PSU switch off, then open your PC to remove the existing cards and install the new one. Remember to turn the PSU switch back on. Power on, then install the new drivers you downloaded. Enjoy your PC!
