I've recently been trying to upgrade my H30-50s graphics card. In fact, I've bought the wrong card twice from misguided advice. Ended up buying 2 cards that were 12cm instead of the needed 7cm or so. Believe me, that's been frustrating enough.
Anyway, I've finally found a card that'll fit. It's MSI's low profile 750ti. Its got plenty of power. Looks great. Hopefully should fit. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Nvidia-750Ti-Graphics-Dvi-D/dp/B00ZA1IFGA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8...
Wattage on Amazon says 400W. Wattage on Nvidia website says 300W. As far as I'm aware, the H30-50 has a 240W PSU? Is this graphics card an absolute no-go?
I have the i3-4160 model. 12gb ram, upgraded with 8gb recently. 1TB HDD.
If this is not a possibility, is it possible to upgrade the PSU considering how slimline these pcs are? I'd much rather find a new PSU than have to try and find another, decent specification, low profile graphics card.

Lenovo supply 2 PSU for the H30, 180W and 240W. I think the 240W is only for the i7 so you'll probably have the 180W PSU which will not be enough to power the GTX750.
Check your PSU model number against Lenovo H30 hardware options in the manual https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/desktop_pub/lenovo_h30_hmm_20140929.pdf
I've copied the details for you.
