Can I use 3080 temporarily with 500w PSU?

So I've upgraded to 12700K with my 3080 and give my old computer (4770 CPU) to my mom who use it with a 500w PSU. However, I just have some idea I want to try my 3080 on the new vs old system. Is safe to just rip off the 3080 from mine and put it back in my (now-mom) systen? Just for running benchmark for a few hours?

Don't think it's a good idea. What's the brand and model of the PSU?

Non OC 3080 is 320w, add the CPU for up to 150W, some power to the drives etc you'll be over 500w, so it's a bit dangerous...
