You can't be sure. Why?

Not only must it fit and you have slots with enough PCIe channels but there's power requirements (think Amperes not Watts!)

After all that you have driver hell to work through. I usually do the BIOS, motherboard then GPU drivers but some insist on try Microsoft's Update Driver Button which is a ticket for fun swamp rides.

Your mobo has 2 pciex16 slots so that's a go.

You need to get the dimensions on the new cards and do some measuring around the slots.

You will need a full tower case and a 1 kw single rail psu.

Those 2 gpu's spec out at 500w.
Add some other misc stuff and you will be pushing that psu hard.
If it's a single rail unit you might get away with it.
If it's a multi rail unit I think you can forget it.
Plan on a psu upgrade if you go that 2x1080 route.
