Buying a new graphics card, making sure I get the right one


Nov 27, 2013
Hey all,

I'm planning on getting a new gtx 1070 for Christmas and wanted to make sure I don't get the wrong one.

My specs
Case: BitFenix Shinobi Window
Mobo: ASUS H170 Pro
CPU: i5-6600 CPU 3.30 GHz
HD: Samsung 500GB 850 EVO (& a 1TB HD)
GPU: NVidia GTX 660
Memory: Corsair 16GB
PSU: EVGA Supernova 650 GS

So I'm hoping to find the least expensive gtx 1070 that will fit in my case. Also if there is a more reputable brand I should go with, that would be great info. Finally, I was wondering if it was possible or worth it to use an SLI bridge between my current video card.

If any of them will work and I should just scan slickdeals for a couple days, I can do that as well.

Hoping to future proof a little and be able to play games like ME4 on Ultra.

Thanks for your help!
Your case can support GPUs up to 12.5" - huge.
The vast majority of 10x0 cards are 10.5".
It should fit no problems at all, get whatever is cheapest. I do not believe there is a 1070 12" or longer out there.
