No, there's a very big gap between the 960 and 970.
No need to use "common sense" when you can use facts and benchmarks! The 970 is over 30% faster than the 380X at 1080P and 1440P, which is about the difference between 40-45FPS and 60FPS.
Seems a great deal, this is much better than the lowly 460, but would recommend getting a 470 is you can spend a few bucks more.
