hp prodesk 600 g1 Tower power supply upgrade

Hello, I have a hp pro desk 600 g1 Tower and I want to buy a 1050ti, but my power supply only has 240W so I have this question, can I put another power supply on the PC such as EVGA 400w or corsair cx- 450m or Antec VP450 450W ATX?

Thanks for your time
This is the pc i have<br>

You can test this.

In reply to: Power supply

I used a P3 Watt meter during my tests. You can also gain a few Watts back if you move from say the existing HDD to SSD. You can see that did drop a measurable number of Watts in my tests.

Since I tested along the way I was able to know that I didn't need to change out the PSU.

In your PC it appears to be a non-option as it's not a full size PC. We never advise buying these small PCs if the owner wants to upgrade later in the area of the GPU but it appears you should be OK with the 1050 Ti (don't bother with the 1050 non-Ti.)

Psu

It looks like your machine does not use a standard atx psu.

So even if the new psu fit in the machine the plugs are wrong for the mobo.
