I’m looking to upgrade the PSU in my desktop to accommodate a more powerful graphics card. However, I’m pretty worried by some of the things I’ve been reading on forums suggesting that I can’t go any higher than the 310w PSU already fitted.
I would like to upgrade to a 500w power supply.

Good Day. A warm welcome to the HP community. I reviewed the case regarding the query about the PSU of the computer. I will be delighted to assist you here.
The recommended PSU for this desktop is
310 W SFF (Gold) Full range 115V/230V
Please follow this link for the specifications of the same.
Hope this helps. :)

Hi, thanks for the reply. I am fully aware that the system I have has a 310w power supply already fitted. My question is how do I upgrade the power supply to allow me to fit a better graphics card than the gtx 1050ti? Are there power supplies in the 400w-500w range available for this gaming machine that is advertised as being ‘upgradeable’?
