Hi Jamie and welcome to FPCH,

The GTX 1080 requires a 500w PSU, you have a 650w installed.
Allowing for a 10% - 20% possible fall off in power ( can happen over time) this still leaves you more than the 500w needed.
So yes, the system will be able to run the GTX 1080.

The GTX 1080 does look a nice Graphics card ( I run the GTX 960 ) but the cost is not worth it for what i do on my system.
I'm not into serious gaming.
