    Hi,
    Happy new Year to you too, yes it could be possible according to this thread but the original poster didn't tell us the outcome, you have a 750w PSU in your model.

    Okay Im back, didnt want to reply before I had my RTX 2080 TI in my case.

    So yes RTX 2080 TI fits, if anyone read this and own a 2017 G6-710 with the GTX 1080 FE, i7 7700K, 750 PSU that came stock from ACER, you can ad a RTX 2080 TI with no problem, BUT, you cannot choose any model size, as just below the card, I have mine SATA 600 connectors, and there was only 2mm "air" between the GTX and the controllers, so you need to pay attention to how thick it is, MAX is 4cm, if you go to 5cm you cannot use 2 controllers. If ACER/support team/moderator, wants me to ad pictures, or email pictures to them, I will gladly do that to help other owners of my Acer model spec.

    GTX 1080 FE Size : Size = 4 cm x 26.9 cm x 11.1 cm
    So if you got the same MOBO as mine, with SATA controllers/connectors just under the GPU, Predator G6-710 (U3E1) , all you need to pay attention to, is how thick the GPU is that you want to buy and upgrade to , 4cm = fits
    So what model did I choose : 
    ZOTAC (GAMING) GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan : Size = 3.8 cm x 26.8 cm x 11.3 cm

    But there are other models RTX 2080 Ti that fit :
    ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Blower = 3.8 cm x 26.8 cm x 11.3 cm
    Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Ti TURBO OC 11G = 3.51 cm x 27.2 cm x 11.365 cm
    Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti TURBO 11G = 3.6 cm x 27.1 cm x 11.25 cm

    But if you dont wanna waste the same amout of cash that I did, and "just" wanna go RTX 2060, 2070, 2080, SUPER, just go to your fave online store, and see whats fit. If you dont have the SATA controllers/connectors below your GPU, you are one lucky guy or girl, and I will forever, untill full MOBO upgrade, be a jealous Viking. Skål!

    Again, remember to have the PSU that has the power needed to upgrade the GPU you wanna buy!
