Despite the controversy with the VRAM, these cards have performed very well for me. I have screenshots of benchmarks on my build page. I can see how using a single card may pose issues though. So, in SLI, you will easily max out most games at 1080p and achieve 60+ fps.
Works great most of the time, but under heavy load at stock speeds it can crash. I researched and found more info here: http://forums.evga.com/Solution-For-Black-Screen-Problem-For-GTX-970-SC-ACX20-2974-m2332911.aspx
For me, it was in Witcher 3, Kaer Morhen balcony, High settings, 1440p. The GPU would only reach about 74 degrees, but after several minutes I would get a black screen when the GPU would shut down and I would have to reboot my computer.
Seems like a flaw with this particular model. I was able to "solve" the problem by using MSI Afterburner to set higher fan speeds. This seems to have resolved the issue, but it does make it louder.
