HP EliteDesk 800 G1 + GTX 1060?

I just bought an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 i7-4770 and MSI GTX 1060 AERO 3G OC. PSU is the 320W HP proprietary and apparently difficult to change as discussed here >>> http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2302723/elite-desk-800-psu.html. It should be a quality PSU unit, can it work? What can I expect? Can I limit the watt consumption of the CPU and/or GPU? (I know it's a pity but if I don't need all that power, then why not) Alternatively, is it possible that some other and more powerful HP PSU, from other HP computer can fit?

I think the 320W PSU is good enough, but it could be that you're almost maxing it out. I think you'll find out once you try it, I guess.

If it's not enough, it matters if you have a tower model, or the SFF (Small Form Factor) version. As SR-71 mentioned in http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3736629/elitedesk-800-sff-power-supply-upgrade.html , there's no real upgrade for the SFF model. The tower model probably had more than enough upgrade options.
