I've upgraded that exact model a few months back. Costco is wonderful... 🙂
You can upgrade the M.2 port by adding an NVMe m.2 SSD. I used a Kingston that was on sale and it ran fine.
Disconnect the HDD first, then install to the SSD. After you verified it works, you should wipe the HDD to free up space for storage.
You can upgrade the video card up to a GTX 1050ti. Your power supply will meet the requirements. The Power Supply is a small form factor and proprietary, so upgrading it will be pretty much out of the question.
You should have 16GB of memory already so upgrading to 32 would be not really be a benefit for most.

OK one correction, you might have to go with the smaller GTX 1050ti because I dont think the longer one will fit.
You would have to measure to be sure.
You will probably have to use this one...

@MikeV93 Did the large version you linked fit in the case? How well do the games run compared to the prior graphics card? Also, is the 310 watt power supply holding up well with the graphics card and SSD you added?
