@johnh48, welcome to the forum.
The newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mie-October 2012. The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI. The last cards not to require UEFI are the GTX 660/670's.
Here is a video card that will give you what you need. However, it will require a power supply unit (PSU) upgrade, also. I like Corsair products. I suggest a modular PSU with at least 500W. Almost any card that will meet your requirements will require a PSU upgrade.
