So long as you've got an available PCIe x16 slot open to drop the GPU in, yes but I'm primarily concerned about the make and model of your PSU as well as it's age. Often times people perform hit and run threads whereby they ask if it'll drop in only to come back and say that their system blew up...all because the PSU wasn't up to par.

Better yet, list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

So we know you don't have clearance issues either.

While from what you have provided, a few conclusions can be drawn about the quality of your PSU, but it would be ideal for you to provide the manufacturer of the PSU as well as the series of products from which the PSU belongs. The model number is usually enough to deduce this information. There are probably several "650w 80plus silver" power supplies out there, and not all of them might be good enough for an RTX 2080.

I don't think that's a good unit, but I cannot say for sure. The reviews are few and far between, and none of them reliable. Based on the PSU Tier List on LTT forums, this is a unit worthy of the trash can, so I definitely wouldn't risk an RTX 2080 on it. Get a better unit.

I wanted a 2070 not 2080
