@ProttoyX83 , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that tells you what to consider when upgrading your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

You should check to see if your motherboard has UEFI.  The article explains where to get this information. 

 

Each manufacturer of the GT 1030 has their own specifications: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/colorful-gt-1030.b4632

 

You should check the the length of the card and the wattage required to run it properly.  Your power supply unit (PSU) is 300W.  The information I found on the Colorful card said that it requires a minimum of 300W and uses 30W of power.

 

The PCI Express x16 slot on your motherboard is most likely 2.0.  The GT 1030 uses a PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, but it is backward compatible.

 

If you have further questions, let me know.
