Upgrade my pc

HP Pavilion 570-P017C
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Pc broke a little while ago, and I replaced the graphics card with a GT 730, I was wondering if I could replace it with a GTX 1650 4GB Overclocked and wanted to get a 500 Watt power supply. I was wondering if these upgrades would be possible with my computer.

Maybe instead of a GTX 1650 would there be any alternatives like a gtx 1050 and such.

I think a 1050, 1650 or 1660 or AMD RX 570 or similar would be fine. If you replace the PSU then you'll just be limited by physical size, which you don't have much. You'll also need to check the the case can accommodate 2 x width card (i.e. make sure there's more then one removable slot cover on the back of the case)

I would suggest for the PSU to pull the existing one and take it to a reputable computer shop and show them. Tell them you want 300w + with the same mainboard connectors. You'll also need to check the power requirements of the video card, meaning it might need a 4 or 6 pin power adapter. The 1050 won't. It gets all its power off the bus.

I mean the slot that you plug the card into will provide all the power the card needs (some cards require additional power)

I've no experience with that store, but maybe look to see of they have good google reviews?
