    depends on which 1070 hes selling you, what brand is it from? what type of cooler is on it?

    either way it will be a very nice upgrade from a 970 that is for sure. Just make sure it has a decent cooler on it as a lot of those mini cards have terrible heatsinks and generally just a single fan and they also most the time have less vrm components. If you plan on overclocking a bigger more standard card would be better.

    Gigabyte mini is not that good. Idk about Zotac mini but both cards have hqve undeperfoming cooling compared to full size 1070. Its also running underclocked.

    I wouldn't get a mini card unless you had to due to not having enough space.

    Dont buy Zotac mini!!!
    It runs a bit hotter/louder (depending on fan profile) vs standard size cards with better coolers and power delivery.

    I know you had an eye on 2070 but isnt worth paying 550eur to play 900p 40fps Control with raytracing. We will ge there one day...
