@SachinVerma1991,

You now realize the motherboard will not allow you to change out the PSU to a standard ATX form.

Of the 11 offered models of that unit, there are none that offer a graphic card.

I know that the power supply can be upgraded to 310w.

Can you tell me the part number (model) for 310w PSU that can replace existing 180w?

@SachinVerma1991,

You know the motherboard uses a non-ATX standards PSU.  Your answer is still NO.

It is because of the proprietary power connectors found on these boards.

 

@MariusBic,

The 310W PSU that does fit that model  is defined here.   The part number is listed.

It is listed as a regional component, look at the Power Supply tab shown here.

 Amazon has it here.
