I have no response for this post, I was probably stoned drunk when I wrote it cause I don't remember
Anyway i'm sober now so let me make a meaningful post:
Both chips are good in their own right some people would say BD is crap and what not, but honestly it is a good chip, just not in the benchmarks. If you are going to game and u are strapped for cash go for the 960T, after all u have the chance of it being able to unlock it to a X6 or X5.
If you need to run heavily mulch-threaded apps or need to run alot of apps at once by all means the 8120 is the way to go and u will have some futrueproofness, if that is a word
Both are good chips in their own ways it's up to u to decide what you need it for and then make the buy.
