Not sure if my graphics card will fit in this build.....

Hi all :)

I'm looking to get a new compact PC while still using my graphics card. But I'm not sure if it will fit in this case as I've heard many concerns about this...
Furthermore, is the cooling going to get in the way? Is a 550w Power supply enough for this?

My Graphics card:: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-sc-gaming-acx-3.0-8192mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-304-ea.html#tech_specs

Many thanks for your help

That doesn't seem like a very balanced build. What are you using the system for? gaming? specific games? non-gaming uses?

And if you're on a tight budget, why the £50 spend on slightly faster delivery?

It should fit the GPU, I'm just not sure about whether any of it is the best thing to buy, depending on your use case :)

Thanks for the reply :)

I have my reason for the faster delivery, and the portability is very essential for me :/

My main use will be for video games. What improvement would you suggest?

Not buying an Intel i5, not buying a trash tier motherboard, not buying slow single channel RAM. Instead, R5 3600, B450 mobo, dual channel high frequency RAM. And buying an SX6000 SSD instead of the QVO (on a mobo that doesn't bottleneck it either). And if it's a mini ITX system buying a modular PSU.

But it's hard to say without knowing your uses as asked above :)
