Acer Aspire TC-885-EB11 motherboard

I have been trying to figure out the motherboard on this model of Acer Aspire desktop as I cant to turn it into a 3/4 decent gaming PC. I want to know if the motherboard supports full on GTX/RTX cards as I wasn't planning on keeping it in it's case. I want to add a 1070ti I have laying around into the computer to give it some more OOMPH over the i5 I have no thats 6 years old. All I really want to know is if this motherboard supports PCI 3.0 and if so can a card drop right in.

    I have this computer as well, with a 1660ti graphics card put in and it runs nicely. What i want to know myself is can i upgrade the processor to an i7-8700k or an i7-9700k? I can't find the info on the physical motherboard and looking online hasnt been helpful. Both the processors are LGA1151 socket. The only difference ive found is one is 8th gen (8700k) and one is 9th gen (9700k). How can i find out if my tower will support them?

    Normally the chipset is matched to the processor generation, so no 9th on an 8th motherboard.

     My friend' is going to get a GTX 1660Ti and a new PSU, I would like to know which PSU you have. Also do you think it'll have a lot of room for air to flow or it's better to just get a new case because the case looks a bit too small. Thanks

    For TC-885 motherboards, the x16 slot is PCIe 3.0. Other user already answered your question. What you need to think about is upgrading the power supply and prepare to give up the x1 slot next to this x16 slot.
