    I saw where some were running the AMD RX 580 on a GA-P45T-ES3G, a socket 775 intel from 2011 with a regular bios , Some of the newer cards require the Uefi bios.
    https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/4027509 I have a XFX RX 460 on my GA-P45T-ES3G legacy bios but it may be the XFX brand. Make sure you can return it if it doesn't work.
    You have to make sure you have the extra power connectors for it also on your PSU.
    Requires a minimum Quality 500 watt PSU

    The answer is both YES and NO
    Yes you could if it would fit in the case
    The board is micro ATX and if your case is micro you may have real problems
    The card
    https://videocardz.net/asus-radeon-rx-580-4gb-dual
    as you can see is dual width and whilst that in itself may not be a problem the overall dimensions are
    9.53 " x 5.07 " x 1.49 " Inch
    24.2 x 12.89 x3.8 Centimeter
    as here from the Asus site
    https://www.asus.com/uk/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-RX580-O4G/specifications/

    Now dealing with the actual card on that board - you are trying to gain benefits which you will NOT
    the card is way in advance of the board
    Looking back to the first link I sent you - you will see
    PCI-Express 3.0 x16
    Power Connectors
    1 × 8-pin
    TDP/TBP
    > 185 W
    Recommended PSU
    500 W

    On that board you do not have PCI-E 3.0
    The PCI-E 3.0 is backwards compatible but the speed of the processing on the GPU chip will be limited by your PCI-E slot which is version 1.0
    So basically you are wasting your money to some extent
    https://www.legitreviews.com/cyberpower-gamer-ultra-2098-budget-gaming-pc-review_1762/6

    It will work but the speed of transfer on the slot will not match the capabilities of the card

    Plus although I would say it is not worthwhile, if you do go ahead check the PSU as above and the fit as mentioned

    I think I am correct in saying that you have asked the same question on another site and have received replies
    Indicating on the other site some more details of your system
    Although I thought your motherboard was DDR3 ram not DDR4

    I am not suggesting for one moment that there is anything wrong in asking the same question on more than one site.
    However if you do not still need advice from this site, then if you could kindly indicate that, by marking your topic solved, by clicking mark solved on your opening post that would be greatly appreciated.

    If of course you wish to ask some questions regarding the advice e received here, than it will be our pleasure to assist you.
