Oculus VR upgrade for Milton motherboard that currently has a 180W PSU

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, Recently bought this from Bestbuy . Now bought an Oculus Quest 2 and it needs very power hungry PSUs to run PC content via a GPU upgrade ( the machine only came with Intel 630 graphics built in) . This particular model has a proprietary HP MotherBoard ( Milton) and I guess, very HP specific power connectors that make it impossible to just replace the PSU with something like a 500 W from Newegg etc.  HP teams posts on this products Bestbuy page, seem to suggest ( for generic "graphics card upgrade questions" - not specific VR ready GPU's)---- to use the L64961-800  PSU. But that is only 310W and is mostly unavailable except for like close to $ 250 in any case.

Is there a higher wattage PSU compatible with the Milton MB and the mid sized HP tower case ( 13.2 x 6.2 x 10.41) and is, say 400 w( min) but preferably 500W capacity? Or is there a web location to find how to take a commercially available 500W PSU and use connectors etc. to get it to be compatible with the HP Milton motherboard? Worst case , I'm even open to having the PSU outside the PC and have power cables pass through the slots at the back ( worst case!) I know its a long shot and something I probably should have thought about in detail before buying into a closed ecosystem, but appreciate your thoughts and suggestions .

Unfortunately, that was a very accurate afterthought. A long shot indeed.

 

That is why I always research and  build my own gaming PCs. The other HP Experts who frequent this section of the forum also do that. Think ATX  PSU, Mid sized Tower, 32GB of installed memory, 16GB video cards that are VR ready and 750-1000Watt PSU.  That is our realm
