780 is vastly superior, go with that if its in working order. I would replace the thermal compound on it with something like arctic silver as there is a fair chance it may have dried out. I had a 780 and replaced the TIM after 2.5 yrs

That is a pretty good price for a 780 as long as it works.

Meh some build specs...

Both of those are pretty good deals, but the 780 is a considerably better value if your PSU can handle it. The 960 is still a decent deal at $100 if your PSU isn't up to the 780, but you'd have to try and knock the 960 guy down to $85-90 for it to really be a great deal.

Sincerely,

get the 960, it may not have the raw clock speed as the 780 but it's newer and will have better driver support, and I would only get 960 if its the 4GB model, for another 40$ you can get a 1050ti with warnty, brand new. raw power doesn't always win the fps war. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487290&cm_re=1050ti-_-14-487-290-_-Product
