Some humor first. Depends on the model of HP 590.  Your a tad vague.  What is the exact model number ?

History:  The HP 590 is a series of computers originating early 2018. There are several models. The Lincs boards are I5 & I7 Intel, the Sunflower boards are AMD Ryzen 3 or 5.  The basic PSU a 180W, while some variations have the 310W (based on a GPU like the GTX 1050 75W), if that GPU did not need a PCIe 6 pin power plug.

NEED:  Sometimes that becomes a "desire".  That is a premise where you tell me what you want to do. Suggest an intense game. Then I make a valid suggestion.

PRICE for GPU and PSU: In a basic case about $350.  In an extreme case, MSFS 2020 will cost about $1000 in upgrades.

PSU note:  HP utilizes a proprietary designed PSU.  Here is a spreadsheet.  While your 590 is not listed, when you do decide on upgrades, I will update the listing to document the changes.
