If you are doing a fresh installation, You could create a new DB instance and use it to build/install the vCenter.

If you are already using a SQL Express and want to move to SQL standard you can follw the below KB Article

Also note that SQL Express latest version, can handle much larger databases than the older version which was limited to 4GB.

So there's not many compelling reasons to move an external DB, provided you have sized your vCenter Server to 2 vCPU and 12GB RAM (minimum). (As per recommendations by VMware).
