Not really wise. That system is quite old and the power supply not really big enough (roughly a 360W PSU by todays standards). Does it have an 8-pin or dual six-pin PCIe power connectors?

There is also a good chance a late model GPU won't work in that system. Recent GPUs rely on having a UEFI BIOS type, your system is not likely to have that.

I would say to be safe, stick to something like a GTX 1050 or GTX 1060. These are a little older and much lower power.

Yeah, that prebuilt PSU is a very old group-regulated one and only really a 360W in any meaningful sense; with a +12V rail that weak, it's not even good group-regulated. I wouldn't try anything that requires supplementary power. Definitely a no on an RTX 2060.

Hello There !!
I completely agree with Eximo, you can also go with AMD Rx 6400 it doesnt require extra power connector and performs similar to 1060.
PCIe 2.0 4x probably not going to work great for an RX6400. That card only performs its best in a late model system with at least PCIe 3.0. Also may have similar compatibility issues with an old system.
