Answers :

Yes you can buy a power supply that is over 300w and it will still work. No reason to get a new case. Just make sur you get the right ATX power supply. They come in 20 and 24 pin with power for the cpu. Any good retail computer store technician should be able to help you. Here is the part number for replaceing it with an HP Power supply 5188-0129. Hope this helps
Yes, It is a GOOD IDEA to get a bigger wattage PSU in case that you want to add extras to your HP. No you do not need a new case unless it is beat up, or you just do not like it anymore....
