The two are both pretty equal, the 770 just edging it, but really the difference isn't much. If you care about the games offered with the 7970 take that, if not, take the few extra % performance and get the 770.

If you're only ever going to have 1 GPU, then I'd shoot for the 7970.

If you're even thinking about Crossfire/SLI, then go with the 770.

From a performance standpoint they are pretty even, with Nvidia beating out AMD in some games and vice versa in others. However, Nvidia is top in SLI scaling and stability, so if you're going to go with 2-3 GPUs, then go Nvidia, otherwise I'd snag the 7970.

The rest of your build looks very good.

Good, solid, well thought out build.
Just one observation: If you like movies and your monitor is HDCP compatible you might want to consider a Blu-ray drive.
The other guys have pretty much nailed the main question but one final point: The 7970 needs a powerful cooler to tame its heat output without being noisy, the 770 can run well enough on its reference cooler which is more compact and exhausts its heat out of the case.
