I have a G20AJ, and it uses two power adaptors, one 180w, and another 230w. It is a desktop but is powered like a laptop. I want to get a 450w PSU but I'm only experienced with these laptop chargers. Does a normal PSU use one laptop-style plug or is it completely different?

Does the following link show the User Manual for your G20AJ

https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Desktop/a/Manual/XX09_G20AJ_E9351_V1.pdf

And the power connectivity that you are posting about is shown on physically numbered Pages 15-17. Blue identifiers 12 & 13, Page 17.

Normal PC's only have one PSU powered via one power cable from a wall outlet.

Your G20AJ is designed to have/ to work with two "PSU's" (Specs are different.)

My answer is that a single 430 Watt PSU is not viable.

Trying to switch to a single PSU (no matter how modified) is likely to damage your computer.

Unfortunately, there is no such PSU upgrade (or any upgrade really) for that system. A standard PSU has a variety of connections that your system has none of.
The G20 series from ASUS is extremely proprietary.

So should I just replace them with the standard G20 PSU? I found the 180w and 230w for the PC.

180w: https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwj0jv2ogqrpAhUP_-MHHfFXDrUYABAEGgJ5bQ&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESQOD2n4AQdyNiJt5JYoT7KpmBvjtmbyNWymCxNVAl2M9-JOsUKBGrH8YEda_TPTXbS2RJdLBQGXBE0FrfegN4NeE&sig=AOD64_2nCzwBkCuVo0CHNJK0fXg4fgXkEQ&ctype=5&q=&ved=2ahUKEwjtwvOogqrpAhWVaM0KHZrfCEkQwg96BAgMEAo&adurl=
