Power Supply Upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0145m
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello! Just bought this desktop and saw that it only has a 180W gold efficiency power supply. Will this be enough to upgrade the RAM from 1x8gb RAM stick to 2x8gb (16 total). If so about how much should my next power supply be and would any power supply brand work? 

Thanks for any replies!

@Mario_V17 , welcome to the forum.

 

The power supply unit (PSU) in your computer is HP proprietary.  You can only use HP replacements.  However, here is a "Power Supply Cross Reference chart for your model:  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Power-Supply-Cross-Reference-for-specific-model...

 

If you look at your model and the other models that have your PSU installed, it doesn't list an upgrade.  You should be able to upgrade to 16 GB of memory without a PSU upgrade.  Here are the Motherboard Specifications for the computer:  https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-desktop-pc-tp01-0000a/37874144/document/c06429270

 

If you look at the section titled "Memory upgrade information" it states that the maximum is 32 GB of memory in a 64-bit system.
