Does this only happen on Call of Duty or does it happen on other games as well?

Contrary to popular belief the GTX 970 does not have 4GB of VRAM as it is advertised to have. It actually has 3.5GB of VRAM but that should not cause problems as 3.5GB of VRAM is enough for most games.

What you should try and do is uninstall your graphics drivers via device manager, restart your PC and then let them reinstall and then update your graphics drivers if need be via Nvidia GeForce Experience.

You could go the extra mile by removing your GPU from your Motherboard and ensure all slots are clear of dust. Motherboard and GPU.

Tinker with your game settings as well. Low, Medium, High, Epic, whatever your game is running on. Try tuning down shader detail or run the game on a lower setting than you are.

If problems persist tell me and I will look more in depth into video issues for you.

Could have just simply been an issue with the VRAM on that specific released card - it does happen sometimes....

Yeah, when you let static fuck with it, which is what it looks like. Not to be mixed up with the known GTX970 3.5GB VRAM fast and 512MB VRAM slow issue.

Trying very hard to understand as to why multiple people think the problem happens in Call of Duty when the game in the video is clearly R6.

You probably just got a faulty card. It happens. Glad you easily got it replaced though.
