upgraded pc

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion 595-p0074

Hi, so recently I put a Radeon XFX 570 graphics card into my 595-p0074 pc. but, I just checked, and it says I need a 500-550 watt power supple when mine is a 180 watt. would putting a 550 watt power supply in my pc overpower everything? or would I be safe? im just scared im going to spend 100$ then ti melts everything. if it is safe, what one would u recommend?

The power supplies in those units is proprietary. That means you can not buy an over-the-counter PSU.  These are made for HP. Here is my spreadsheet on the 500W L05757-800.  It will only use what it needs.  It will not harm your system. When you complete the transition, let me know so that I can update the database.  That helps others.

PS<> the PSU will mount with the forward latch and 1 rear screw. Not an issue.
