I'm currently looking at upgrading the Graphics card to a nvidia gtx 1660 super 2 fan, 2x16 gb of ram, and increasing the existing storage to a 3 or 6 tb (i intend to keep the 7200 rpm the same if possible) but my main concern is i i've no idea what the current power draw on the system. Ive looked at power calculators online but of course it requires a specific type of motherboard that the lincs is not apart of. Any help would be fantastic! Also if i did upgrade the power supply what kind of room am i looking at? I believe the 1660 2 fan will fit but if not let me know ahead of time before i find out the hard way

Welcome to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
The 1660 Ti requires a 450 watt power supply and one 8 pin PCIe connection.
You have a factory 310 watt power supply.
HP only provides a 400 watt power supply upgrade for your chassis.
You may not be able to install a 1660 Ti in this PC.

@Grzwacz is able and dedicated. We have shared information on these units. But I need to be very blunt. The HP 590 series has both the Lincs and Sunflower motherboards. Both have been tested with the 400W L046180800 PSU. My shared info has shown the Sunflower has been successful with the GTX 1060 and this 400W PSU. (See "Notes" at bottom). My theory is that the 400W would work with the LINCS plus the GTX 1060.
Now, there is a 500W PSU that works with the Berks HP 795 series, and has been tested with the 795-0030qd. What is interesting is the fact that your 310W PSU is used in the HP 795 -0030qd.
(1) the mounting screws. Only 1 lines up with the 400W. No one has reported back on the 500W. There is an internal PSU latch, and that secures the PSU from moving forward. The better news is that the PSU lays flat in the case, so that 1 screw has potential to hold the PSU.
(2) The rear of the case needs some dremel work to allow the PSU fan full exhaust.
