Why is everyone voting for 970? It's not high-end, and there's that well known 3.5gb limitation.

Regardless of the 'gimped' memory, it's still one of the best performing GPU's for the money.

yeah, and the performance tanks when games need over 3.5gb, so "for the money" argument goes out the window right away. Moreover, by buying this product you encourage nvidia to do this again in future, in fact, they already did by gimping Kepler in new titles via unoptimized drivers. Next year when Pascal hits, your 970 will meet the same fate and perform worse than a $150-$200 mid-range Pascal GPU.

Pascal is also going to be akin to a Tock from intel, a major, drastic architecture changex hbt memory, and a die shrink. If the 970 isnt smashed by pascal, then we have a serious issue.

You are just confirming my argument and shooting your own in the foot. Who's gonna waste money on a crippled 970 which is gonna be replaced by a "smashingly" better bang for the buck Pascal in less than a year?
