Can You Put a GTX 1050 ti LP or 1650 LP in a HP 8300 without upgrading PSU?

Hi, I am looking into buying a HP 8300 and have seen hundreds of videos on putting a 1050 ti LP in it and actually being able to play games. The pre-installed PSU is a 240W and the 1050 ti is a 75W board with the PCIe slot only providing 35W to the GPU. Many people seem to have got it working by just installing the 1050 ti and it works but I want to know if it will fry the system without a PSU upgrade. I wouldn't be playing heavy games, mainly just CSGO, Valorant, Minecraft, League. Please comment if you know anything. I don't want to waste my money on a burnt system. If it will need a PSU upgrade can anyone find anything that will fit in the HP 8300 system
