@LCP47,

You really only need a 500W PSU.   Pulling an RTX 2060 (160W) card into your HP 580-027c does not require a 750W PSU. The issue will be length of the card.  I would suggest you make a heavy gauge cardboard template of 4.3" x 10.5" and drop that into place. Trim off 1/2" at a time until you attain the length that will fit. An RTX 2060 can run from 8 to 10.5 + inches.

 

I would recommend a Corsair CX 650 based on the following premise:

1) Exact fit into the case.  No more need to upgrade.

2) Because it is has more power potential than you need, it will idle, and be energy efficient.
