Upgrades for PC

HP Recommended
hp pavilion 595-p0074
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to know what upgrades I need to make to my PC in order to install a better graphics card. I have a new game (MechWarrior 5) that I would like to get more out of. I have already upgraded the RAM to 32 gigs. I have done nothing else to the PC. I would need to know what power supply will push the neccessary components.

Just stock Intel UHD Integrated Graphics 630 that came with the PC. There is a SFF180watt power supply.

@Draagen_Alpha,

The specs for Mech Warrior 5:

CPU: Intel i3-7100/AMD Ryzen 3 1200

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770/AMD Radeon R9 280X

RAM: 8GB

Storage: 55 GB of free space (SSD)

Recommended system requirements

OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit)

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K/AMD Ryzen 7 1700

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070/AMD RX Vega 56

RAM: 16GB

Storage: 55 GB of free space (SSD)

 

Now to the other issue.  The PSU in that unit is an HP proprietary designed unit. Here is a cross reference of PSU model.   The GTX 1070 card would require a 400W PSU.  This video shows a case and PSU of the same design.
