What are you planning on playing? You might have a serious issue.
Measure the existing 2060 length and act accordingly. RTX3080's tend to be triple fan 11+ inches long. The power required is 320W, so you looking at a 650-700W PSU. Rosewill makes an exact fit 700W modular. But your across the "pond". How about 3 links to the some computer parts dealer in the UK ?

To be honest mainly RTS games. I do occasionally play driving games (Forza Horizon 4) and games like Star Wars Squadrons. I guess I am looking to future proof a little, but don't necessarily understand evrything involved in PC's. I don't play 4k as my monitor is just a quad HD monitor from HP. I was thinking of the standard one from NVidea (when it comes back in stock)

this is only my opinion, but if you still have this setup;
Whether you are ready to buy a card worth around $ 900, to play games that don't need it, I would tell you to drop
Your processor is not the best, there is only 8 gb of memory
And the power supply is insufficient!
without actually speaking of a case may be unsuitable: overheating!
At least try to increase the memory, if there is a need, it will already be that!
