Default CPUs....AMD 840 v 965 black

Here's a link to the sale going on at Microcenter for those interested. mobo sale

I'm inbetween buying the 840 and the 965. I'm not going to be doing any overclocking or such. I just want to upgrade from my current B50 x2, that doesn't have any stable unlockable cores, to an x4 with a better mobo. Is there any substantial benefit in spending 50 extra dollars to gain .2 ghz and 30W of power?

PS I was leaning towards the M4A88TD-V Evo. Is it worth getting the M4A89GTD Pro for an extra 30 bucks?
