    You have a single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot for a GPU and no auxiliary available for a replacement GPU. This means you are going to have to get a GPU that runs on only the PCIe power budget (66W IIRC). The GT 1030 might work and they might have something newer for that budget, but there is no way to get any extra power in. Just changing to a bigger power supply won't work because there is no way to take that extra power and give it to the GPU.
