well since you have the 960 you may as well use it . Once its OC'ed it performs well

AM3+ mb with a 970 series chipset [ asus m5a97 evo or asrock extreme 4 ] $95
2 x2 gig of 1600 MHz RAM $30
500 gig hard drive $75
dvd drive $18
case with front usb 3 ports $70 [ antec 300 two ? ]
radeon 7850 $220
500 watt psu corsair cx 500 $ 40

The limitation of the m5a97 evo is that it cant sli or crossfire . But its the best of the 970 series mb's
