@Dimitri3,

The exact model number would be very helpful, like 790-0010, 790-0050,  etc. All HP 790's have the following:

1) Utilize an HP proprietary  PSU (power supply). That means it is not an ATX 24 pin style.

2) The models I have documented  use the Rother motherboard.

Here is a spreadsheet to explain the HP 790 series.  Most had either a 310W or 400W PSU.

NVidia states 9", 160W, requires 500W PSU.    Cards vary in length with each manufacturer, see here.

These vary from 7.5" to 11.8" and 160W to 190W.

In a real world situation, I would suggest you turn it off. Pull the power cord. Open/remove the side panel.

Cut a piece of heavy stock card board 4.3 inch high, and 10.0 inches long. Lay it against the back of the GTX 1050Ti and see how many inches you can add.Place against the back inside edge. If too long, cut 1/2 inch. Now you have the length of whatever GPU card would fit
