@Arslan6 , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Illustrated Parts and Service Map for the computer.  On Page 2 is a list of compatible video cards in the section titled "Other boards".  The main problem that you will have is compatibility with the motherboard.  Newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a stanard/Legacy BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  Your computer was released in 2011.  The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI.  Also, newer cards require 400W to operate properly.  Your power supply unit (PSU) is only 320W.  It is difficult to upgrade your PSU because the power connector on the motherboard is 6-pins.

Thank you so much. The problem is that I have seen a YouTube video where a person has used Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti in the same system as mine .I will appreciate if you can clarify that .

You are very welcome, @Arslan6!

 

I can't clarify the fact that someone was able to get the 1050 Ti to run on your computer.  I suggest that you contact the manufacturer's Tech Support to see if they may have a VBiOS that will allow it to work.  I know of many who have had problems with newer cards not running with standard/Legacy BIOS'es.
