@LOZALgame , welcome to the forum.

 

Here are the specifications from Zotac: https://www.zotac.com/product/graphics_card/zotac-gaming-geforce-rtx-3070-twin-edge#spec

 

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

 

Your motherboard has UEFI: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

 

So, this is not a problem for you.  The main things to consider are 1) the length of the card and 2) the wattage required to operate it properly.  The article tells you how to measure the space to assure that the card will fit with space for good airflow.  The specifications for the card state that the card requires a power supply unit (PSU) with 650W and 2x8-pin PCIe power connectors.  This means that you will have to upgrade the PSU.  The PCIe slot on the motherboard is PCIex16 Gen 3.  This is good for the card.

 

As stated in the HP article the best way to get good information about the card is contact the manufacturer's Tech Support.  They are the experts on their products.  They will be able to tell you if the card is compatible with the HP motherboard.

I put a new power supply in my PC today. It has 750w. It's a corsair 750rm. It's enough I think. But the card seems too wide. I hope not. Thanks for your help

You are very welcome, @LOZALgame!

 

The PSU should be great.  The RM series is one of Corsair's quiet PSU's.

 

I wouldn't be too heart broken if you had to buy a 2070 or 2080.  They are very powerful, also.  I have a 2080 in my custom build and it runs any game that I throw at it at Ultra settings.  However, after looking at the motherboard diagram again, I believe that the width of the card should be fine.

 

Good luck!
