Want to add gpu, but not sure what will be ok

HP Pavilion 590-p0076
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently picked up a 590-p0076 for 349 from recent sale. For the price paid I'm very happy with this little thing but I'm was hoping to add a gpu if possible. 

 

My main question is will the current 310w(gold) psu be enough to power a rx 560 or gtx 1060? (The psu does have 6 pin connector but I'm worried about power)

 

If not, would a 1050ti (stock clock) be a viable option power wise?

psu swap isn't really a viable option with current pc

@CrabCheap,

For all the others:

This OP bought an HP 590-p0076 unit. The motherboard is the "sunflower".  The "lincs" and "berks" motherboaards all share the same configuration power supply.   The 310W is the stock PSU. There is NO available upgrade offered.  If you bought a higher priced unit within the series, options for the GTX1050-1080 were offered.  (that is a 400 or 500W PSU).

 

The GTX 1060 (120W card) requires the 400W option, and the RX 560 (100W card) should require the 400W option. The low powered GTX 1050ti is a 75W card, and NVidia rates a 300W PSU for it.  It's a coin toss if it would work.

your systems "sunflower" motherboard does have a single 16x and one 1x slot and while nvidia recomends a 400 watt supply they have to use "generic" ratings that wil cover systems that have up to seven pci-e slots and  four (or more) ram slots instead of your boards two memory slots.

 

due to this i think that the  stock (non overclocked)1060 6GB ram model cards 120 watt draw will just squeek by as long as you do not add a second mech drive  or another optical drive

 

the 1050TI card will work as it only requires power from the pci-e slot (75 watts) for most of the 1050 models and even those that have the aux power connector will not draw over 100 watts

Thank you both for the response, Im fairly new to computers and worried I will end up with a card I cannot use. I noticed https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06085291 have the same psu and the one in the 590 does have a 6-pin. 

 

Sadly a 1060 would be well outside my budget regardless of my psu. The particular card I had in mind, PowerColor Red Dragon Radeon RX 560 RX 560 Graphics Card - 4 GB GDDR5 - 128-bit, anyone know if this will work (psu aside).

the radeon card is recomended for a 450 watt supply, as such i think the 140 watt diffrence between your current supply and the card makers recmended wattage is to great

 

https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/radeon-rx-560

 

however all is not lost, HP did/does make a 400 watt supply that fits your non standard power supply connections

 

 the  HP Pavilion 690-0020 also uses a sunflower motherboard and comes stock with a 400 watt supply that should fit your system (no part number sorry)

look through HP parts surfer using the Pavilion 690-0020 and you should be able to locate the 400 watt part number

@CrabCheap,

The problem is shared by the following series units.  There are likely more.

These include all models in the series for the HP 595, 690, and 795.

All use the same power supply. If you purchase the basic model, you get the lowest end PSU.  The only upgrade path is when you order a special configuration model, selecting the GPU matches up with the required PSU.  It is that simple, and that harsh. 

What is the situation:  These all use a propietary PSU with only 3 power leads.  Two are a 2x2 block, the MAIN and CPU power. The single in-line P2 marked plug is actually only 3 wires.  It's purpose is the 12v Fan header supply.

I could rattle off the HP part numbers,  and the actual manufacturer's ID with part number, BUT, these would only create hostility, as only the 310W PSU is available.
