Dell XPS 435MT with GTX 1070 - would it work?

Hello everyone!

I have been thinking about upgrading my video card and since the launch of the GTX 1070 I have been thinking about it more.

I did read someone who fitted a GTX 780 (reference blower) into the 435MT case a few years back and just wondered what peoples thoughts were on the above?

If the 1070 fits does anyone see any issues with running it on the old 435MT motherboard? I know it has PCI express 2.0 and not 3.0 but from what I know this will only reduce performance buy a few frames. 

To note I have already upgraded my power supply to a EVGA Gold 650W after the original died.

System specs: 

i7 920 CPU

Original 435MT motherboard

24gb Kingston RAM

120Gb Crucial SSD

1tb WD Black HDD

EVGA Gold 650W PSU

Any info much appreciated!
