Upgrade suggestions for unRAID server, how much power do I need?

Hello all,
Currently, my unRAID server is an HP Elite 8200 SFF PC with a Core i7-2600, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, two 8TB HDDs, and one 128GB SSD. The server is running rock solid 24/7 right now. I want to add a 3rd 8TB HDD and 16 GB of RAM in the near future. 

The case and mobo will support these upgrades, but I’m worried about the measly 240w proprietary PSU that this SFF PC came with. According to some power calculators I won’t have enough juice, and according to others I will. Also I don’t think there is any way to upgrade it. Not sure what I should do here. Thanks for any suggestions!


Here's the spec sheet for this machine: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-compaq-8200-elite-small-form-factor-pc/5037931/document/c02781693
