Upgrading Hp pavilion 690 0079c gaming pc

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

I am looking to upgrade my pc's graphics card and know I am going to have to upgrade the power supply as well due to added power draw. I keep finding a 400w power supply mentioned but am trying to find an alternative due to wanting to run the graphics card that is in the pc as well as the new graphics card. The current cpu in the pc is decent for what I want. It is a AMD Ryzen 7 1700 8- core 3.00 ghz. The graphics card is a AMD Radeon RX 550 4GB. My power supply is 310w.

I would advise at least getting the 400W PSU, or the 500W one if you are planning to step up to a much more powerful card than RTX2070.
