Dell Vostro 3668 GPU Upgrade PSU Problem

Vostro 3668

Vostro 3668

Hey everyone, I decided to upgrade my machine which has an i3-7100, 4 GB RAM and HD Graphics 630. I'm already going to update the RAM to 16GB, but also Im gonna choose one of; a 1050TI, 1650 or an RX 6400. My problem is that my computer is limited with a 240W PSU. My question is that, "Will the computer work with a 1650 (A version which doesn't need external power) without any problems from the PSU side?" If the 1650 is gonna be a problem, should I choose a 1050TI or a RX 6400? Thank you.

According to the UserBenchMark page here, the best compatible card is the 1050Ti.

psu calculator says 240w psu is ok for gtx 1650 in typical real world scenario of your pc.

Load Wattage:232 W to 236W.  

If you do not use mechanical HDD and DVD which waste power, even better.
