This isn't really a discussion, but I thought you guys would find it amusing.
I bought a 1070 this weekend and it turns out it won't fit into my old case. My desk has a built in spot for my PC with cable runs et al (I had the desk built 15 years ago and have schlepped it to every house ever since coz it's huge), so I've not upgraded my case since the early 2000's..
now I need a case that'll take a 31cm video card, and apparently a new power supply since they changed the power connector from 6 pin to 6+2. Talk about disappointed... Oh and my wife told me I can't buy them until next pay
