Hello
to the question, I would answer yes ...
but with certain limits
You can if not already done add RAM
The graphics card, under certain conditions
Check the required power supply, if need additional pci connectors, are they available on the power supply?
The dimensions, if the model found is too large it may not fit

An SSD, SATA, could be installed!
after all is question of budget, the possible games, for some, it would be better to replace the computer

if it is this model
