Building a new PC

Projected Specs:
i5 4590, MSI B85-E45, G Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB 1600MHz, Samsung Evo 850 120GB SSD.

Some old components that i will transfer from my current rig:
XFX 650 Watt PSU (Around 45 or 46 Amps from a single 12V rail)
Samsung 1TB 7200 RPM HDD
Samsung DVD Rom
Samsung B2200H 21.5" LCD 1080p

Now i an trying to figure out which GPU i should settle for.
Choice #1. GTX 960
Choice #2. GTX 970

I am actually buying this PC to play GTA V mainly. I might play some tier 1 titles in future. But generally i don't play much of single player games. I mostly play LOL and CSGO. But I do want to use this pc for next 4 years atleast, being able to run upcoming games with good playable fps.

So which should I go for? Will spending extra money on the 970 be worth it? Or should I just save a bit and get the 960, as most of time i will be playing not so demanding games.

Thanks

Based on what are you saying the Mobo is poor? I dont plan on Overclocking nor SLI.
So there is no point sending unnecessary money on Mobo. I wont get any performance improvement for that.

And how does putting a 970 depend on the mobo. The mobo i chose will fully support it.

That motherboard is going to boil during gaming, it has no proper heatsinks. You don't need the most expensive mobo in the world, but you do need a decent one if you're going to be gaming.

I am from Bangladesh. And i dont exactly have access to huge collection.
I can give you links to 3 of the popular stores websites from my country and you may suggest from them.

Just go to the mainboard section and suggest me some. Mind that i dont intend to spend more than TK 8000 on mobo. And $1 = TK 78

You could just buy some fans and place them on the various hot spots of the mobo.

Us pc dudes have a history of modding. XD
