Change Gpu on HpPavilion 595-p0069nl

hello everyone, I wanted to ask here some information regarding the change of gpu. 

Now i've an hp pavilion 595-p0069nl with i7-8700 , 16 gb ram and a 1050 ti 4gb.

I was looking for the best video card that does not need external power , 75 watt, just like the 1050 ti I have. I found the 1650 that seems to give a bit of a boost in performance, but I saw that it has 300w recommended power. I checked how much that was required by my current video card and found 300w there as well. I therefore wonder if I can make this purchase since the 2 video cards have the same consumption. the problem is obviously the psu which is 180w. this confuses me because the 1650 has the same watt demands as my 1050 ti.

@AVATOM 

That is because all card manufacturer's have their own design.  Some add a PCIe 6 pin power port.  The 180W units do not have an added PCIe power cable.  HP utilizes a proprietary designed PSU device,  and has 3 different 310W PSU units.  I can not verify if any have the PCIe power plug, at this time.  So, that said the 400W is a guarantee, if the exact card you pick needs PCIe power cable.
