Upgrade power supply

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming 790xt Desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Need to upgrade the power supply in the 790xt from a 500watt to a higher wattage maybe 750 watt or so.

Wondering where I can find a power supply that will fit this case and motherboard?

Thanks!

@smallWstudio,

500W is the max you will attain.  The PSU in those models is an HP proprietary design.  It is (2) 2x2 plugs and an inline 7 plug.   The connectors are not standard ATX PSU plugs.   Here is a spreadsheet that lists example of your 790 series computer.
