The motherboard has a pci-e x16 2.0 slot. It currently has a 1050 and im looking to upgrade the card. The Rx 580 are a very solid price right now and im looking to buy it. Will it work in my PC?

Make sure your mobo does not have any proprietary connections as well

Sometimes, OEMs will make their own specific cables for their PSUs, this means that you can't just use any normal atx PSU with them

ok, so before i buy just make sure that I can take everything off of the motherboard and see if new PSU has the necessary cables? And what cables would mainly be the problem do you think

Yes, you could do that, or you could just look at the PSU cables and if they don't match the ATX standard then its proprietary.

I would check around online for your exact model of Acer and see if you can find others that have it working with the Radeon RX cards.  The reason I mention this is some (older) prebuilt's OEM's have issues.  I'm thinking your system is new enough it would likely be fine but I would double check before purchasing a card.   Skip to 7min mark on this video for example of issue I'm speaking of:

 

 

Ryzen 2600 - Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 - Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3000 C15 2x8GB - Corsair Force MP500 NVMe PCIe M.2 240GB - 2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB - 

AsRock B450 PRO4 - Deepcool Earlkase Case -  Seasonic Foucus+ 650
