Based off of this article, you should be good to go with any ATX PSU off the shelf but I'd advise you to give us a full run down of the hardware inside that prebuilt. We will also need to know what you plan to upgrade to from your current hardware for future references so we're not suggesting an underperforming PSU for your upgrades.

If anything, please include/list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard: Pegatron IPMTB-TK / HP: Truckee-UL8E
Ram:
SSD/HDD:

Also, where are you located, what is your budget and what are your preferred sites for purchase?

First: update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Second: read the following link from within this Forum:

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-psus,4229.html

Use the calculators to determine the required PSU wattage to support your build and allow for future growth.

Third: Read the reviews and select a PSU that is suitably sized, available, and fitted to your budget.

Do not skimp or otherwise go "cheap".

budget is flexible, i just wanna keep my PC going a few more years and maybe play a game or two. i do mainly music engineering and photo editing. but i was told I'd have to upgrade my psu to change my gpu. then i was told i didn't have many options because i have legacy bios and can't switch to UEFI because none of my stuff would work

Do I even need a new power supply if I want to upgrade to a 4gb graphics card? Mine is 460w. I can't use the newer cards anyways due to being on s legacy bios

I cant seem to find any graphics cards that would work with my system.
