I've been looking to upgrade my graphics card to a GTX 3050 or a GTX 3060 and realized that my PSU is not suitable for this type of upgrade. The recommended Watts required for these cards was around 450W-650W. I was wondering what sort of PSU I can upgrade to that would be the most compatible for this upgrade and fit inside my PC?

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Your HP Pavilion Power Desktop - 580-027c as per: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-power-580-000-desktop-pc-series/16425610/model/1847..., is fortuitously fitted with a 24-pin ATX-enabled Odense2-K motherboard with SSID: 82F1.
This means that you can swap out your existing power supply and replace it with any industry standard ATX power supply, as long as you check its dimensions for fit.
For example, take a look at this Corsair SF Series, SF600, 600 Watt, Fully Modular Power Supply, as seen here: https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-SF600-Modular-Supply-Certified/dp/B01CGI5M24/ref=sr_1_9?crid=3H95VR0C....
This PSU has the following dimensions: length x width x height: 4.9 inches x 2.5 inches x 3.9 inches.
You'll have to make some measurements of your current power supply and look for something that most likely will fit -or can be made to fit (even if that means to use Velcro tape) in your desktop.
Hope this was helpful.
