    from GL553VD asus page

    you can see that 256GB SATA3 M.2 SSD is compatible
    just grab one and migrate the data

    i strongly suggest you do a clean install of windows 10 in order to avoid bugs.
    and use the HDD as an external USB disk (to reduce noise) or install on the SATA slot if available

    best regards

    Both PCIe (NVMe) and SATA M.2 SSDs are compatible on the GL553VD. Best to go with PCIe, much better performance is possible.

    You can too install a 2.5 SSD into the laptop, if you have the holder instead of the DVD Drive

    It is possible to replace the optical drive with an SSD if you get an HDD caddy. However, this is not something we test and you'll be without an optical drive. In case you are adventurous and never use the optical drive, you'll need a 7mm caddy (there are different sizes - 7mm/9.5mm/12.7mm) and SATA 3 SSDs are supported.
