@Kayleb2375, welcome to the forum.
The first thing to check is, does your motherboard have UEFI. If not, the card won't work. Then, there are two main considerations when upgrading the video card: 1) the wattage required to run it properly and 2) will the card fit into the space provided for it.
Your power supply unit (PSU) is 460W. I doubt that this is enough. Also, the 1070 requires an additional 8- pin power dongle. Your PSU most likely doesn't have one. This will require a PSU upgrade, also.
You should measure the space from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case to make certain that the card will fit.
I always recommend that members contact the manufacturer of the components to assure that they agree that it will work; especially when adding new technology to an old computer.
