Can i Run a 1080 ?

HP OMEN 870 213W
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The psu is a 500 bronze and i currently have the 1070 that came with it. Now that GPU prices are falling i want to see if i can get away with putting a 1080 in without upgrade the psu. I went to a PSU calcalater and it said the load would be right under 500 watts so im not sure. maybe down clocking the GPU might help ?

Paying money to downclock, what for ? Anyway, it is fine to run with 500W

Both the 1080 (link above) and 1070 (link below) use same power (wattage : 94W)
