Question PC Upgrade

Hi everyone,
I was thinking about upgrading my Acer Aspire m3985 from 2011/2012.
It has 6 gbs of RAM, an Intel i7 3770 and a gt 620 (with a 300w power supply, i think).
Is it a good idea? Or should I buy a new PC? I wanted to buy some components for like 150/200 euros, like a gt 1030, a 450/500w power supply, add 4 gb RAM from Crucial (Crucial 4GB Single DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800)) and an SSD.
What do you think? Are those component great/compatible?
I wanted to make more FPS (for games like CSGO), to do a bit of video editing and the PC to be overall faster.
Thank you so much.

For upgrades on that old system: 1) 1660 gtx super. 2)SSD,. 3)I would go with 16 gigs of memory. 4) a good gold rated psu. Honestly though you would be better off to build a new system.
