The Pentium G620 is the dual core Sandy Bridge processor from the Intel while the 960T is the older Phenom ii processor from AMD.
However, the Phenom ii 960 is still better than the Pentium G620 in processor performance.
The Pentium G620 is however a low cost processor that comes with integrated graphics ( HD 2000). The Graphics is not great in the sense that – it will not allow you to play high end games without stuttering. But if you are not into gaming the G620 provides option of building a very low cost desktop system.

Some more details of Pentium G620
The Pentium G820 is a stripped down version of the Sandy Bridge processor (Hyperthreading has been removed from this processor). It is intended for the entry level to moderate performance desktop processing. G8620T is a low cost processor that should be delight to low cost system builder and will take on the AMD’s low cost Athlon ii and Phenom ii dual, triple and quad core processors. The Integrated graphics runs at 850 MHz and can ramp to 1.1 GHz based upon demand. A low power variation of this processor is available ( See G620T)
