    There is 1 PCIe slot for a Gen3 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD. You can use a M.2 2280 NVMe SSD, like the Samsung SSD 970 or 980 1TB, https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/46679129#DRIVE The NVMe Gen 4 type like the Samsung 980 Pro will run at a slower Gen3 speed.
    This model supports up to 32Gb RAM (2 slots, 2x16Gb each) DDR4 2133 / 2400Mhz SO-DIMM

    You can add up to two 16GB DDR4 SODIMM modules 2133Hz or higher frequency up to 3200MHz.

    The specs suggest your mainboard has the older 2-key B+M SSD SATA card socket. So you need a 2-slot B+M SSD SATA card up to 2TB size to fit without issues. Please check your that your SSD socket has two keys before ordering as shown below opposite the WD blue SSD.
