Performance at this stage is nearly equal at this stage.

The 965 supports the newer ich8 memory controller, but is less overclockable than the 975 (in the memory department - but it might change with refined bios updates). The 965 also has a better chance (not sure if all 965 mobo's will) for quad core cpu's.
