What if color doesn't matter... Im mostly worried about the performance and compatiblities of the components. I am looking for a nice quiet case w/ good air flow and space. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

I did just switch the GPU, case fan and case. w/ the notes I said above. Are there any thing I should change based on the case and case fan, related to performance and compatibility?

What is the reason for the change in GPU? what are the differences between Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming Video Card and the Asus GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Dual Series Video Card? Besides brand and Aesthetics.

As well what does "The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6Gb/s ports are disabled" mean? It shows up in the compatibility notes.
