I hope you enjoy your visit to the HP Support Forums. I understand you are have questions about upgrading the power supply and video card. I will be glad to help you.
I looked at the specs for the motherboard and the video card. The motherboard only supports PCI E 1 and the video card is PCI E 3.0. The video card will fit in the slot but will only run at PCI E 1 speeds.
I know this ios not what you wish to hear, you still can upgrade the video card and the power supply but will not improve the performance.
Please keep me informed of how things went.
If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.
