@Salty_shanks909 , welcome to the Community.

 

All of the newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

 

HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  Your computer was released on January 9, 2011: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-elite-hpe-500-desktop-pc-series/5035344/model/50610...

 

The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series.  You may want to choose a video card manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They are the experts on the products.  They may have a card that will work with either Legacy or UEFI.
