    Here is a comparison between the AMD Radeon R7 240 that came in that desktop and the AMD Radeon RX 570 you're wanting to upgrade to.
    It's a huge improvement in performance, but it uses a lot more power.

    Here is the AMD FX-4300 processor that came in that desktop.
    It's not a strong performing one, so it's going to handicap the full performance of the better graphic card.
    It also doesn't have the "horsepower" for quality gaming.

    That desktop came with an unknown brand/model 500W power supply.
    It may or may not be sufficient for your needs.

    I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, so my advice is very limited.
    I'll leave you to those here who are.
