    I still want to argue about this, but I'm worried I don't know how.

    Did any of you guys, who have returned the cards, have to authorize this return with your gtx 970 manufacturer?

    No. Scan do not require this, nor do Overclockers. I cannot speak for other vendors.

    Thanks dizzi. Sadly I can't say the same about CCL.

    It appears some readers are pressuring Amazon to get 20% of their GTX970 money back... seems to be working too, well in America at least.

    Even with Amazon's awesome reputation for refunding almost immediately, I expect that will be the exception rather than the rule.

    Update:

    GTX970 returned.

    GTX980 bought.

    Too many doubts about SLI I can't confirm.


    Sorted.

    On the plus side, you are now a member of the 980 master-race.

    It took much begging and selling of my body to afford the 980 if she should ever find out I think my bits would be rearranged.

    Mines not worth selling. I might get half a potato for it if I was lucky.
