@Robert164,

Thank you for an interesting challenge. So, lets find out why?  To suggest a new GPU and PSU without knowing the reason is foolish, and you really do not want that problem.  Typically I ask what "most intense game" you want to play, then I add some overhead for the future. No much, but better than a stock reply. So, suggest that game.

 

Your HP 550-313no is an AMD.   I will reference fit by showing using an Intel HP 550-126.  Both boards are the same layout, just different chips.  This video, only shown as an example with the 550-126, shows a new GPU and PSU fitted into the unit.

So, you mention that game, I suggest PSU and GPU.

You will also need a slim power (DVD drive) adapter for the PSU.

@Robert164 

You need a  GTX 1050Ti card to get suitable recommended play.  That is a 75W card. Your 180W PSU should support a non-powered card (some has PCIe 6 pin plug). 

 

If wanted to be safe, I would choose a Corsair CX 450 PSU and the GTX 1050Ti powered card.

It needs the PCIe 6 oin offered by the 450W Corsair.  But the card is 9 inches, so measure the space.
