    Yes, you case is a Zalman Z11 Plus HF1 is a Mid-Tower, ATX-sized case, with a GPU length clearance of up to 290mm. The Zotac GTX 1070 mini you wish to buy is only 210mm in length. Though the thickness of the GPU will take up 2 expansion slots in your case, I see no problem fitting the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 PCIe x1 Wireless card in the next expansion slot below it. Your Gigabyte
    GA-H110M-A micro-ATX-sized motherboard has two sets of PCIe x1 slots below the PCIe x16 slot for the GPU. You can simply connect the Wireless card at the bottom-most PCIe x1 slot with no problems. I'd just be concerned on the 3 antennae of the card that *might* get in the way of the video cables connected to the GPU output ports above it. Just simply rotate the antennae so it won't obstruct the GPU ports.

    Other than that, I'd just look into what your current CPU and PSU are. The GTX 1070 is a very powerful card but low power consumption. If you have a CPU that is lower in performance than i5-6600, then chances are, you'll bottleneck the GPU in *some* CPU-hungry applications/games. The total power draw of your entire rig would *probably* not reach ~350W on peak loads. It is recommended though that you get a ~500W-ish PSU as *more than enough* to power your system.

    Clear and a great reply, thanks a ton! Especially on the clarification you've stated about not getting a CPU lower than i5-6600 because I already had a lower one on my cart ready to purchase but paying an extra $20 for the 6600 would make a perfect pair for the GTX 1070, thanks for your help. As for the PSU I have the Rosewill 80 Plus giving off 550W which is ideal. Again ,thanks for the reply :).
