Sorry for the late response. I didn't get a notice that you replied.
You can upgrade your graphics card, but you need to meet two requirements.
You need (1) a power supply that will be sufficient to power the system with the upgrade and (2) you need to have enough space to fit the card. Take a tape measure and measure the available space inside the tower and compare it to what ever cards specs length.
Your Power Supply is already 500W, so look up what ever is recommended by the cards MFG for a PSU.
You already have a GTX 1070 installed, but you need a more powerful card? Just curious why as the 1070 will still be fine unless you're trying to play high end AAA games on a 4K monitor.

If you are going to change towers, you need one that will have the standoffs for a Micro ATX motherboard.
The power connectors from the towers switch might have individual wires that are marked for the mobo connectors. You shouldn't have much trouble figuring out what goes where. I don't have any recommendations for a new tower though as I haven't tried replacing a tower for that model.
