@LCP47 , welcome to the Community.

 

The motherboard has a standard 24-pin ATX power connector.  You can use any standard ATX power supply unit (PSU).  I suggest that you consider a full modular PSU.  They allow you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary allowing for better airflow.  There is no limit on the amount of wattage for the PSU.  However, there is overkill.  I like the idea of 600W.  Here is a PSU that should work for you: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-rmx-series-rm650x-2018-cp-9020178-na-650w/p/N82E16817139232?&quicklin...

 

I tried to find one that was not too expensive.  This is why it is 650W.  Computer components are through the roof because of the virus.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer.  So, it is best to get the best one that you can afford.  You need clean, stable, power to run the latest, greatest, components; especially video cards.

HP has their components made to their specifications to work with the other components in the case.  Therefore, they are not necessarily the same as a retail version; including the case.  This means that you may have to do some retro-fitting with certain components.  Now that I have provided an example for you, you can measure the space exactly and buy a PSU using those measurements.
