I am considering upgrading my graphics card to a 3080 TI. I just wanted to check that I would have no issues with replacing the existing card with the new card.

Also is there a market for a second hand RTX 2080 Super card ?

Your PSU is too small for me to endorse adding a 3080ti as they can draw tremendous amounts of power at full throttle. I would want at least 850W in there, and probably 1000W in all honesty.
I’m also not too sure about having it in that case, the thermals aren’t great and your cooler selection doesn’t help that so it might overheat a little.

In addition, on the configurator it states that the case can only support GPUs with a length of 32cm and that the 3080Ti is 33cm+

Unfortunately that's not a well configured system with any sort of upgrade potential in mind. I'm surprised it's performing well in all honesty as it's a hot thing in a hot box without any well defined cooling solution. Would recommend that you get some guidance on the forum for the next big upgrade to try and avoid such a situation :)

Thanks everyone, it was well worth the post.

A follow up question if I may.

Can anyone recommend a GPU upgrade that would be beneficial and suitable for me spec

Thanks in advance.
