Your existing RX 550 does not require PCIe 6 pin power. It runs off the PCIe slot.

GTX 1650 cards vary in DDR5 or DDR 6 RAM.   DDR6 has different power requirements per manufacturer.


Example: EVGA (75W)  and MSI (85W) both require 6 pin power. HP has designed these PSU units as proprietary. Only the 400W and 500W (so far) have the 6+2 power plug.   See this spreadsheet.  The TP01 is a series.


BTW<> for reference, is your 310W PSU the L64961-800, and does it have a unused 6 pin PCIe plug.
