Graphics card upgrade for HP ENVY 700-210xt CTO Desktop PC

HP ENVY 700-210xt CTO Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Per HP, my only graphics card upgrade options are a GeForce GT 640 (4 GB) or a GeForce GTX 640 (2 GB). Where might I acquire the GT 640 or are there any additional options that are compatible?
