Upgrade GPU on HP Pavilion 690-0018 Desktop?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 690-0018
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello HP community! I recently bought my second gaming computer since my previous one finally gave out.  Here is a link to it. I just want to possibly upgrade the GPU. It's equipped with an Nvidia GTX 1050. Upon some research, I found that some Single Fan GPU's may fit this specific model I own. My question is will those be compatible with the Motherboard and such? I do plan to upgrade the power supply before any GPU action. Here are some links I've found from a helpful fellow on YouTube: EVGA GTX 1060 6GB -Single Fan | ZOTAC GTX 1060 6GB Mini - Single Fan 

 

Any help is appreciated! Thank You.

In order to upgrade to a gtx 1060, You will need to upgrade the PSU to a 500w setup. But your system uses a Small Form Factor PSU.

Here is a thread where another user with a similar computer as yours, was able to use a 500w PSU in its place...
