If you are pc gamer such as myself you may not know yet but the Geforce 970 cards are flawed. Stay away from them if you plan on playing any game over 1080p. Nvidia gave consumers the wrong specs on the card and only now the information is coming to light after gamers are experiencing issues. Theres alot of mumbo jumbo but the jist of it is, if you play a game that wants to use over 3.5gb of memory, the game is going to take a severe performance hit. This happens more so on games run at resolutions higher than 1080p. Nvidia marketed the game as a true 4gb card but its not its 3.5gb + 500mb. that 500mb has a much lower bandwidth than the other memory which results in stutter in the game.
