    I believe it will not accept a ninth generation processor as its model comes with the Intel Z170 chipset, see:

    I suggest upgrading the video card. But you should make sure the video card will fit in the case. You can also check if there is a 2280 m2 slot available. On this value, wouldn't it be better to purchase a more current desktop?

    No i don't think it's worth to buy a new PC.

  • Do you already have a ssd m2 2280 installed?

    No i have Samsung evo 860 pro it's quite good.
  • But does your desktop have a 2280 m2 entry? If so, I would upgrade to a ssd m2 2280 and a gtx1080. On the video card, you should see the case's internal compartment to see if a gtx1080 will fit.
