price. 960T is good as well (its a hexcore with 2 cores turned off) there's about $100 difference between each class of cards; 7770: $130, 7850: $240, 7870: $340, 7950: $450, 7970: $550

but its not 100% the other 2 cores can be unlocked and the FX 6100 is only about $6 more and i found a $7950 on newegg for $399

no guarantee on the second unlock. 6100 is WORSE at gaming than the 965 or 960

if the mobo doesn't support the 965, it won't support the 960 either, go for the 6100 in the case.
