Solved!

Is the power supply upgradable?

HP Recommended
TG01-0023w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've heard that this PC comes with a 400w power supply, but I want it to be future proof. Most GPUs require more than 400w however. (such as the RTX 2060.) Is it upgradable?

You are correct that the computer comes with a 400W PSU.  The motherboard is HP proprietary.  It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  You will have to buy an upgrade directly from HP.  They have a 500W (L05757-800) PSU that is compatible with the motherboard.  Here it is on HP PartSurfer: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800

 

You can click the box titled "Add to Cart" to order it.

 

This isn't a lot more wattage, but enough to allow you to buy a better video card.
