The dc7600 is spec'd with a 240 watt power supply.  There is not much hope.  Most of the low end, low profile video card require a 300 watt PSU.

Would it be possible to upgrade the PSU on this?

Read the HP part number off the power supply and do a search on it.  You might find something.

 

The issue to be concerned about in a very small cabinet is heat.
