You could basically install what ever card you want as long as there is enough physical room in the case.
Only way to know is to take a tape measure and measure the amount of distance from the front of the existing card, to the other side where the space ends in the case. Then look up the specs of what ever card you're buying and compare the measurements.
You only have a 300w power supply, so you will have to upgrade that also. Its a full ATX type of PSU. Look up the specs of what ever card you are going to purchase and see what its power requirements are.
Ask yourself what kind of Monitor are you using? 4K, standard 1080p high refresh rate, or standard 60Hz? What games do you play?
What card all depends on your needs. 😉

I’m going for 1080 at 169 FPS plus, I got a 144 hertz monitor but it struggles to get 60 FPS if I scope with a high scope gun lol will my mother board be fine with the latest cards then? I might have to buy a mini 1080 or something then and a new psu, thanks for your reply 🙂

OK let me explain again.
Go to their website and get the dimensions. For this card its...
This is what it says for USA measurements in inches. You can covert to metric if needed.
Its dual slot and 9.25 inches long.
Take a tape measure and measure the inside of the space available. If your system has a video card bracket holding the back of the card, you can take that off and measure the distance.
I have no way of knowing what the measurements are in your case. You have to measure it.
