ALSO. Because i was too lazy to respond to them until now. While checking the cards that you had posted for a rebuttal (cuz i linked them and clearly remember 7000 series cards on some of the links) i noticed they removed all the XFX cards from Newegg that were 7000 series single fan (and not resold by another dealer) along with other R7 cards. My opinion of them has fallen, greatly.
Anyway, Hopefully eVGA will continue to be the way it is now more than 3 years later if my card breaks randomly stops working like mine did (fingers crossed).
AND going back to the main subject: All eVGA GTX 970's are sold out on newegg. When they restock, which one should i buy?
Thanks for the help Mguire. i truly appreciate it.
