    That is a mini tower and you are going to have to measure the size of the bay for the pw supply to see what will fit.
    If you are doing this with the idea of installing a gaming type video card, [IMO] you are wasting your time. HP or any other big box system is not up to the stress of gaming [unless you go with a purpose designed gaming system from dell/alienware]

    According to that part number, you have a HP Compaq 8200 Elite Convertible Minitower PC which has a 320W power supply.
    Is that correct?

    If it is able to load its Windows operating system and has a working internet connection, please do the following in it:
    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
    Information about your computer will appear.
    Return here, then copy-and-paste its entire text in your reply.
