If there's a frayed cable or kinked cable housing, then adjusting the DR won't help at all.

As far as Tourney vs Altus, it's more a feature thing. Altus can get you 9 speeds on the back though if you want that. Not certain, but between the Tourney shifter's and Altus shifters, one might be hold up better when ridden in really dirty riding conditions. But someone that mountain bikes will have to chime in on that.
