    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.

    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...
