There are several items that need to be addressed with your request.

1) there are at least three different models in that series

     HP Compaq 6000 Pro Microtower PC

     HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One PC

     HP Compaq 6000 Pro Small Form Factor PC

2) that is old hardware to accept that graphics card.  Even if it would fit in the case, depending on the model, the power supply would need to be changed to at least 600w.  That alone is probably a deal breaker.

3) the BIOS for that model line is questionable, too. -to be able to run that card.

4) The GeForce 1080 ti  cards I checked out are rather large, too and very expensive.  I suggest newer hardware that is more upgrade friendly and not business class model line, so that it is more flexible to modify.

Actually a full sized ATX case and a newer user friendly motherboard would be helpful.
