My System Specs

So, if you are a benchmarker or an overclocker, the 975 will gain you those extra points! In games, you will only see a marginal difference between the 965 and the 975. If you're looking to save some extra dough, then go with the 965! Honestly, I would go with a 920, 940 or even the 950 and overclock it! Have fun
That's because it's a D0 chip, DUH!

Get a 920 and save yourself several hundred dollars. You'll get the same performance out of it.
