The Sapphire Nitro+ rx470 is a 120W card, requiring an 8 pin PCIe power plug. Guess you over-looked that socket. That said, you need at least a 400W PSU that would have the correct plug.  As HP utilizes a proprietary PSU in those units, you have to order either an L04618-800 or 942332-001 power supply.  Just google it, or use HP Parts Store.  Hope they ship to Singapore.
