I have a GTX 960 and am thinking of upgrading to the GTX 970. Can I use the same power connector that I have on the 960 with the 970 without having to buy a new PSU?
 
It depends on the make/model of your psu and the graphics cards.
A normal GTX960 needs only a single 6 pin aux pcie psu connector.
A normal GTX970 requires two such connectors.
Some factory overclocked versions of graphics cards require more power than normal.
If your psu has the requisite connectors, you will be ok.
If you need adapters to get them, then that is not good and the psu needs to be replaced.
