I doubt it will much matter.
Pick the one that's cheapest.

For the most part I see these usually turn in benchmarks within a percent of each other.

This is why you check reviews but model availability changes over time. HOWEVER if I were to shop a GPU I'd stick inside the best sellers. Example:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/pc/284822/ref=pd_zg_hrsr_pc_1_3_last shows four 1060 cards at the moment. I'd compare these. Might just get the top seller if I was buying.

If money is no object then you spend the time to go through benchmarks and buy the best of the best.

At the end of the day if you plugged the top 10 into a machine and ran games the difference would be minimal.

Sorry guys for the confusion. I realized that i will buy a 1070 gigabyte xtreme gaming but
I was worried about the cards size interfering with other components on the board. My case should be large enough, but my main concern was the card being fairly large and not fitting due to something else on the board.

You get the card specs L/W/H and do some measuring and eye-balling around the slot your going to use.

I don't have many components attached im my motherboard just my 2 8gb corsair vengeance, corsair h115i cpu cooler. Thats all. I am worried if the ram slots will block the graphics card upon installarion coz base on the location of the ram slots and the pci-e slot are very close. I wonder if the 1070 xtreme gaming's backplate will have an issue with it.

I don't think they will put the slot the slot on a motherboard in such a position that it can't be used. Did you ask the shop?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
