Fanaticism That's all its been. Blown out of proportion is an understatement.. usually I would think this site would be a bit more impervious to this type of online frenzy, but unfortunately many users on here just kept stirring it up (I believe the majority were AMD fans) Whoever returned their cards obviously felt the need to do so, but the vram issue doesn't change the fact that the 970 are amazing cards for the money.. no matter how much people have gone mental over it. Not even for a second did I consider returning my cards.. do I wish that Nvidia was more transparent about it? Absolutely.. but that is a seperate issue all together. What matters is how the cards perform, and they perform great. Apparently that isn't good enough for some people? Oh well, their loss.
