yes you can, but i think the T530 has a 350watt power supply which is maybe not enough for a rtx 2060, so you could better change the powersupply aswell if you buy a new gpu

The T530 has a 500 watt supply already if I recall correctly.  I got an 850 watt power supply from ThermalTake and it worked great, but whatever you get make certain it will fit in your case and make sure the cables have room to be installed and distributed.  

 

Also, if you are overclocking with the turbo feature in the BIOS (giving you the 4.7GHZ instead of the 2.6GHZ that comes as the hardware spec) you need to either turn that off in the UEFI or download the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and drop your CPU voltages to 1.4 V (according to another user, I haven't tried this), otherwise the high temps will melt your system.  It might work fine for a month, but then you have a system that doesn't stay on continuously and can't be fixed cheaply.  

 

When I discovered what my problem was I just turned off the turbo.  I don't need speed as much as I need a stable computer that will hopefully keep working and maybe even stop crashing if I can figure out what to do about that.

 

For some reason Lenovo gives you this overclocking feature, markets it, but then doesn't tell you how to use it safely.  Interesting service philosophy.  So don't do what I did.  It's an expensive education, and Lenovo probably won't reimburse me, even though I hold them responsible for not explaining any of this in their incredibly sparse documentation. 

 

On a side note, if you haven't checked the BIOS already, the turbo may be off and that might be the key to getting the performance you are looking for... with the above caveats as mentioned.  Good luck.
