No.  The last Legacy GPU that can be used would be the GTX 660.   Your unit has early 2012 parts.

@BassemKa,

Does you unit support UEFI BIOS?  test here  If you do not have UEFI,  you could stop reading now.

The HP 600 G1 utilizes a unique PSU, I call it a 6 and 4.  The main is a 2x3 and the aux to CPU is 2x2.  So, no ATX PSU would work.  The GTX 970 ( circa 2014 is UEFI ) and does required additional 150W-225WPCIe power, depending on the manufacturer features . Some have dual 6 pin needs, some are 8 pin.

The GTX 1060 is the equal to the GTX 970, and requires about 120W, with a 6 pin PCIe.

 

If it is UEFI, you still need to adapt the PSU to accept a standard 500W PSU.  I do not warrant or guarantee this adapter.

Legacy means you can use a GTX 660, or GTX 670.  All require the 500W PSU.   Both are better than the GTX 750Ti,
