E73 Tower - install GT 730 ?

Hello, I bought Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 mini tower (intel i5 processor 2,9 ghz, 8gb ram) and it has 180 w power supply and integred intel graphic card. Can I replace power supply and istall video card (Nvidia Geforce gt 730) without any problems ? Beacuse my lenovo motherboard has 14 pin connector and I cant find any power supplies with 14 pin, only 20/24 pin connectors. It is possible to buy new power supply (20 pin) and video card + adapter that will change from 20 pin to 14 pin ? Thanks for answers.

Re: Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 question

Confusingly, the GT 730 comes in 2 graphics processor architectures, and vastly different power consumptions.

From the Lenovo E73 tower specs, and what cards were optional with it, the bulk being 30w cards, you could use a specific brand/model GT 730 (with the later Kepler processor) that used around 30w with the factory power supply.
