How do I upgrade the power supply on my son's MSI Aegis 3 PC?

It is 450w at the moment, I want to increase it to 550w, is it possible?

HELP! HELP!

It seems to require quite a bit of DIY, PSU is all custom and doesn't have standard connectors, so need to find the right form facto that will fit, do some case mods to install it, and then modify the connectors...

 

I.e. definitely not a plug and play replacement.

You use this as a learning opportunity to build a PC with your son.

 

Make sure the MSI goes to eWaste and not a landfill.

Why?

To install a better GPU. It's ok. I've installed a Gigabyte RTX 3060 vision 12bg GPU, works perfectly. Power running around 95%, GPU 99%. Games are working fine though.
