I recently purchased a HP 590-p0053w, and I have an interesting question regarding adding a GTX 1050 TI to the HP 590-p0053w desktop with 180w power supply. 

 

I have seen dozens of people on these HP Community boards inquire about adding a GTX 10XX to their systems, and the answer seems to be the same each time: The Pavilion 590/595/690 models are configured with a 180w power supply (and Lincs proprietary motherboard), thus making it difficult (if not impossible) to add a graphics card that requires an additional 75w power draw. The safe thing to do would be purchase the 310w/400w PSU from HP's Part store. 

 

However, it appears that HP offers several Pavilion models in the EU that are equipped with the same Lincs motherboard + 180w PSU and 1050/1050 TI cards. Here are some examples:

Based on these systems, it appears that one could safely install the 1050/1050 TI inside the U.S spec HP 590-p0053w. Can someone offer some insight into this? Thanks.
