    I have a very particular use case environment which requires the following:
    A card no wider than 12cm
    2 hdmi sockets
    2 slot maximum
    VR capable
    1070 Gtx or higher performance
    Cheap as possible (2nd hand acceptable)
    Bonus feature: as much rgb as achievable
    Bonus feature: Nvidia

    I have been considering a 2nd hand Asus Dual 1070 but the first one I acquired for a reasonable £180 had a broken HDMI socket and required squeezing as it was 12.8cm

    Any suggestions for models I should be hunting for?

    Should be able to get a mini 1070ti or something similar.

    Will it it? I'm not sure, but it's a tiny card so I'm not sure they come smaller.

    I have acquired a 2nd hand MSI Aero ITX 1070 all the way from Italy! I await its arrival next week :)

    Risky. What if it's broken? Will cost to send it back.

    What did you pay for it?

    Got it for €169. Irony being the one that i came second bid on a uk auction didnt sell and got re-listed yesterday. Wish I was more patient and that sellers recognise the 2nd bidder more often.
