    Ok, now that I look closely at one, if you require a PCIe 6 pin connector for the graphics card, it looks like you'll need to find a different power supply. That one doesn't seem to have either a PCIe connector or a 4 pin molex. These older refurbs, especially HP/Dell/Lenovo business class PC's have very proprietary parts in them. They aren't meant for much expansion other than maybe hard drives. I'm not sure if a regular ATX power supply will fit or not. Maybe borrow one from someone or another PC.

    Maybe a modular power supply where one plugs in only the cables needed?

    Nothing proprietary about that HP model. Your pics are not helpful. What makes you think you need a power supply?
