Is the GPU able to exist in a desktop? Not sure if it is special in someway besides being mini. I am moving away from my Razer Blade 15+eGPU due to the Oculus Rift S USB being too stressful on my laptop and black screening. If possible I'd like to avoid buying a new GPU when I have a 8GB 2070 on hand inside the box.

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

You probably could. Just be aware that the 2070 has a similar, if not identical, fan as the 1080. It's huge and uncovered, so depending on your motherboard and cable management, the fan might not have enough clearance.
