@Jack1232, welcome to the forum.

 

The two things that you have to consider are: 1) the length of the card (to assure that it will fit into the space provided) and 2) the wattage required to operate it properly.  The power supply unit (PSU) in your computer is only 300W.  Also, you should assure that the PSU has the appropriate supplemental power connector cables.  Here is an EVGA GTX 1080 Founders Edition.  Read all of the specs in the "Specifications" tab.  It will give you all of the information that you need.  The one thing that I will caution is, the 1080's are priced at a premium.  You could buy a 1060 or 1070 and save some money and still have great system performance boost.
