[quote="Shrekeh"]Nvidia mods,why are legitimate posts being deleted? I've just seen a whole page disappear.[/quote] I don't understand this either. And to top it off, I never cried ONE single time about this whole issue...defending my position that I have no stutters in any game and that has let other people to call me a troll or whatever and I had at least 3 of my post deleted. It's like moderators doesn't even look what's posted they just blindly deleted full pages at a time. Mods? Are you suffering from panic attack or what? What's wrong with your brain? Damn, I never talked bad about my 970 yet you nuke entire pages including my post not bashing NV. I don't understand anymore, it's like there is a panick attack in the house and everyone is running after their tails.

"I never talked bad about my 970 yet you nuke entire pages including my post not bashing NV" maybe because that is not true, i think most of the consumers not happy is Nvidia are done the wrong and keep silent for long time then come out to said is marketing department mistake. for me that is bullshit, such huge company internal have no communication??! if done wrong then make it right or fix, still need talk so many. keep silent is the way to fix it.

Good to see Nvidia is silencing people who are speaking out against them, history has proven thats always the right way to go about it. Instead of silencing their disgruntled customers, how about they open a conversation with them? That could go a long way with coming to a solution with the issue, but no one will probably read this cause they'll delete it.

The stock graphs have pretty much convinced me to change to team red. I of course cannot afford to do so atm because I effin financed this GPU. Yes, this $379.99 EVGA GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 will actually cost me $492 and some change. I wanted to get one while they were in stock. I've seen nothing but praise for it, some of it deserved. My Valley Benchmark score was through the roof. Shadow of Morder runs like a champ. But my older, more specifically DirectX 9 games, and even a couple of DirectX 8 games, have severe stuttering and low fps issues. I have made profiles for these games and set to high performance. I've been doing that since the nvidia drivers introduced that feature. I have tried HPET tweaks, C-State on/off, speedstep, underclocking, bios mod, blah blah blah I've tried everything. I didn't buy this card to benchmark and only play new games from mid 2014 and newer. I bought this card to play ALL of my games. So far it has failed miserably. I strongly believe that to be a driver issue since according to newer games and benchmarks my card is working as intended. Add to that the potential crippling 3.5GB limit threshold that I haven't crossed yet in future games, and you can see why I don't want this card anymore. I am REALLY and GENUINELY willing to trade my card for a downgrade like a GTX 770 (which is still an upgrade than my previous GTX 660). PM if anyone wants to seriously make something happen. I'm certain many others feel the same way about this. I hope this can reduce some of the animosity around here.

Everyone should go to NewEgg, Amazon and other retailers and post 1 star review on all of the 970 cards. This will help prevent others from making the same mistake in purchasing this junk card. NVIDIA can't delete reviews on vendor sites, like they are smugly doing here.

I've replaced my good old 580 with 970 last month. I've been pretty satisfied with the upgrade so far. That being said, I must admit I am appalled with the fact that Nvidia waited for so long to finally disclose the peculiarity of the 970 architecture. I am also not happy with the way they are handling this situation ATM. I am saying all this as someone who has been exclusively using Nvidia GFX cards in my desktop machines since GeForce2 MX400 (from 2001). Now, the sad thing is, even that I would like to punish Nvidia and pick an alternative product from the competitor company I am not going to do it, since I still remember the pile of issues I had with their gfx card on my old laptop...
