does this apply for 970m as well
[QUOTE=.Vel;51041197]How it performs on the other hand, is a different subject that people should have looked into before buying.[/QUOTE] Not according to the judge it isn't. It says 4 gb on the box, nobody is going to go to best buy, look at the zotac 970 and then realize they're getting scammed. Even the NVidia marketing team didn't know that the memory bus was fucked, There's no buyer beware on brand new equipment that also has false advertising.
US only lmao paid 440 euros for this fucking card.
30$ in the future for me. Besides the bummer of not as good performance as advertised. I still love this card and it does everything for me so well.
That's weird. When I try to use my claim number on that site after receiving a claim number, it's telling me nothing in their database matches that number, and I'm sure I didn't get it wrong. Anybody else experience that? Or do you suppose their is some sort of delay?
[QUOTE=Xmeagol;51041748]US only lmao paid 440 euros for this fucking card.[/QUOTE] Go start a class action in your appropriate courts. The US court system isnt an international court.

lol paid 35 bucks to step up to it from a 770.
Oh yeah, $30 towards my next card... or beer money!
i have a card I got from an RMA and a 2nd card currently that I got from best buy (still have the reciept) I have a photo of the ID of the card that I RMA'd too I swear if I get 90$ from this I will scream in joy
If I purchased my card through Newegg am I eligible? It was EVGA brand.
[QUOTE=Nookyava;51043115]If I purchased my card through Newegg am I eligible? It was EVGA brand.[/QUOTE] Yes.
Is the memory difference really that bad? Like was I actually cheated out of my money? A friend of mine helped me build the computer so I'm not completely sure exactly how the card works.
[QUOTE=TheBloodyNine;51044362]Is the memory difference really that bad? Like was I actually cheated out of my money? A friend of mine helped me build the computer so I'm not completely sure exactly how the card works.[/QUOTE] Not really 500MB of proper GDDR5 is not even close to 30$
[QUOTE=TheBloodyNine;51044362]Is the memory difference really that bad? Like was I actually cheated out of my money? A friend of mine helped me build the computer so I'm not completely sure exactly how the card works.[/QUOTE] Does it work well? Does it play games like you want it to? If yes, grab your $30 and go on never caring about this. It was an extremely minor piece of misleading advertising that has no impact on benchmark scores, framerates, or any other useful metric. It's still a solid card for the money.
I figured as much. I've enjoyed the card, was just curious if I should have been enjoying it more. Free 30 bucks woo.
[QUOTE=Mista Tea;51040340][IMG]https://i.gyazo.com/ab9cf8553edf4647b358bb3bb64dfb81.png[/IMG] Woo. Now to wait forever and forget about it. You're welcome, future me. You enjoy those $30.[/QUOTE] [B]Sorry for the bump[/B] (could a mod possibly move this to SH instead of Polidicks now?) I figured I'd follow up on this since I had originally posted about it. I finally got my check! Albeit a little late since I changed addresses. [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/ZKliJ0x.jpg[/thumb] [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/QCC0NUY.jpg[/thumb]
Of coarse I had to get a 960.
I never got my check :O
Got my check weeks ago! Makes the 970 a great deal for what it is.
Aw what the fuck, it expired I didn't realize it was this old ;-; I have a 970 and everything
Dang too bad for you, that 30 dollars filled me up a tank of gas.
I never received my check. Oh well, I totally forgot about this after I sold my 970 a little while back.
Got my check about 3 weeks ago.
i sent them multiple receipts and all that jazz and they said it wasnt sufficient evidence
[QUOTE=JerryK;52588388]i sent them multiple receipts and all that jazz and they said it wasnt sufficient evidence[/QUOTE] Same here.
[QUOTE=JerryK;52588388]i sent them multiple receipts and all that jazz and they said it wasnt sufficient evidence[/QUOTE]Yep, same thing happened to me. I even followed their instructions and everything. Where's my $30 :(
Could have got $60 bucks for my SLI setup but it's US only? Lame.
What the fuck. I got my check MONTHS ago. What the hell have they been doing?
[QUOTE=JerryK;52588388]i sent them multiple receipts and all that jazz and they said it wasnt sufficient evidence[/QUOTE] They pulled that crap with my friend, even after he sent them multiple documents proving his card was eligible. I never received a notice stating that my claim was denied, but I guess they just didn't feel like sending my check over.
