From the scant information on hp's website the PSU is a modified
Gamay, 300W, ATX, Active PFC of unlisted dimensions and form factor. Short of either taking pictures and dimension from opening the system up and/or removing the PSU from the PC case it is impossible to say if an off the shelf replacement can fit.
I fear the more certain solution is to buy a new cheaper case with PSU and fit the HP innards to the new case. Fortunately the motherboard is a standard uATX form factor according to HP
But the work involved in transporting the innards is more work than build a machine from scratch.
This was a debate the two salesmen were having. Obviously the one talking the most shit won.

Have I just bought a dud for gaming?
I may be able to take solace in the fact that it should be fine for most other stuff I chuck at it. Right? Tumbleweed.
The point in buying a PC is its customisability. If you can't swap out parts easily then WHAT THE FUCK?!!!
