    Whew!

    'cause one is on the way. I think we each had our own idea of facing the screen. I meant while using the laptop, you must have meant where the screen was once it was apart. LOL

    Let us know how it goes! I was thinking of doing 1070 in my M18xR2 as well as final upgrade but it's a bit pricey especially when I already have my Area-51m.

    No Area-51M here yet... I'm holding out a year to three for at least an R2 and a 30xx upgrade card!

    Another tangent: anyone explore this festival to avoid SG? I guess we need the flip but you get the idea.

    Try to ask if they got the opposite.

    Idk if those would work but if they do we basically have internal display using 10+ series.

    I'm with you on this one. I always considered it the left hand card while looking at the screen. I was a little confused for a second.

    Digging deeper... I wonder if the issue is there are no outputs on the card, only the edge connector? But I did find this one... if anyone sells it.

    The question is....how would we use it?

    There are no outputs on the GPU. We only have the MB connector and the display

    Congrats on the decision, you will not regret it:) Assuming you have the MSI variant of 1070 you will need to mod the heatsink in two places, there is a great tutorial on how to do it by @DaMafiaGamer, it worked well for me.

    Let us know how you get on.
