Dell OptiPlex 7010 (End of Life) DT PSU upgrade?

I'm planning to upgrade my Dell OptiPlex 7010 DT to use as a temporary low-spec gaming PC while I save up for a new one. I'm wondering if I can upgrade the power supply unit (PSU) to a 300W-450W model. I'm having trouble finding a PSU that's compatible with the DT case. Can you help me with this?

I found a 300W PSU that's compatible with the Dell OptiPlex 7010 DT case: the Seasonic SS-300TFX. However, if it's possible to find a similar PSU with a higher wattage, I'd go for it.

I also found another option with a 450W power output: the FSP450-60GHS(85)-R. It's designed for small form factor PCs and is 25 mm narrower than the Seasonic SS-300TFX.

So, as long as you're saving up for a newer PC, why upgrade both PSU and GPU?  The 53w RX 6400 can play games like Fortnite and Minecraft.

GPU's that'll work with your PSU:

Quadro's P400, 600, & 1000

Edited from PC Parts Bin:

Direct X 12 GPU's for modern rendering:

GT 1030 GDDR5

RX 550

RX 6400 (Beats GT 1030)

Direct X GPU's for previous decade rendering:

AMD R7 200 series (previous and branded from the ATI HD series graphics cards) Important - Check wattages and PSU requirements.

GT 710, 720, & 730

55w GTX 750

Maybe easier to move DT motherboard into a minitower case than finding a low profile psu for DT case.  Those psu are not worth upgrading as they cannot be reused elsewhere
