Default 960 gtx 4g vs 970 gtx

Hi guys. I'm looking to upgrade my GPU and I am stick between two cards. Found two good deals on refurbished cards. Because i'm in Canada, i'm limited to Canadian sellers so here are the two i'm comparing. Looking to get the best card for the value.

EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SSC GAMING ACX 2.0+ - I can get this card for approximately $203.90 USD

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC GAMING ACX 2.0 - I can get this card for approximately $293.00 USD

Thanks guys! Look forward to hearing your responses.

It's definitely worth the price bump to get the 970 over the 960, IMO.
