There are several HP OMEN 25L GT12-0xxx rigs fitted with an RTX 3070 Ti in the UserBenchMark link, such as this one: HP OMEN 25L Desktop GT12-0xxx Performance Results - UserBenchmark. According to TechPowerUp, the minimum power supply listed in this link for the RTX 3070 Ti is claimed to be 600 watt: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database.
However, most sources -including: GeForce RTX 3070 Family | NVIDIA, recommends a 750 watt power supply.

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Your OMEN 25L GT12-0045na Desktop PC (9YT63EA), according to: https://support.hp.com/id-en/document/c06638045,
is fitted with the HP Dorado motherboard (SSID: 8704), which appears to be 24-pin ATX-power enabled, meaning, you can swap the stock 500-watt power supply to any ATX power supply, as long as you watch its dimensions (LxHxW) for fit inside your case. Upgrading your power supply is certainly relevant if you consider upgrading your GPU too.
You can upgrade your gaming desktop with an i7-10700 or i7-10700F (the latter requires a graphics card) -unless your PC is already fitted with this, and depending how much money and importance you place on having the best of the best, the i9-10900 / i9-10900F and even the "K" i9-10900 versions are compatible with your motherboard: i9-10900K / i9-10900KF would be the very top of the line CPUs as seen here: UserBenchmark: HP OMEN 25L Desktop GT12-0xxx Compatible Components.
Please be advised that the i9-10900K/KF processors have a much higher TDP (125-watt) than the non "K/KF" processors (65-watt), meaning, you would have to invest into a major CPU (liquid) cooling assembly upgrade and/or adding additional cooling case fan(s) to keep temps in check.
I would check out eBay and even Amazon for decently priced (used) processors to keep costs down.
[EDIT:] Other upgrades worth considering: I would recommend installing at least 2 x 8GB of DDR4 3200 MHz (may be down throttled to 2933 MHz), and preferably 4 x 8GB RAM. Btw, RAM sticks should be identical (same brand, model, capacity) for best performance. Also, make sure your M.2 NVMe SSD is your primary (boot) drive -consider increasing to a 1TB M.2 drive.
Hope this was helpful.

Hi there again, just a quick question you mentioned the memory currently I have 2 4gb sticks in as you know would it be OK to shove an 8gb of same type and brand just to get me going. Also is the ssd a gen4 or 3 or would anyone those do

Do I understand you correctly that out of four 4 RAM slots, you have 2 x 4GB RAM sticks installed, and would like to add a third, 8GB RAM stick? It certainly wouldn't hurt -after all, you would double your RAM memory, but the best RAM configuration would be to install same RAM (brand, capacity, model) in all RAM slots, or at least in even pairs, such as 2 x 8GB, 4 x 8GB, 4 x 4GB, 2 x 16GB, etc.
Also, be very careful what RAM you buy. Not all RAM is created equal in the HP Universe. For example, perfectly good Gaming RAM such as Corsair Vengeance and G.SKILL Ripjaws clock in lower than the 2933 MHz RAM speed allowed by your motherboard (at 2667 or even 2133 MHz).
When you search through HP System OMEN 25L Desktop GT12-0xxx (with SSID: 8704) User benchmarks here: UserBenchmark: HP OMEN 25L Desktop GT12-0xxx Compatible Components, these RAM perform best:
Kingston HP32D4U8S8ME-8X 2x8GB
Kingston HP32D4U8S8HD-8XR 2x8GB
Kingston HP32D4U8S8HC-8X 2x8GB
Kingston HP32D4U8D8HC-16X 2x16GB
You can purchase these RAM via eBay -if available. Please note, this is by no means a comprehensive RAM listing, but you get the idea.
Your M.2 NVMe SSD socket is a Gen 3.0 x4, but both Gen3 and Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSDs would work, but you'll only see a minor speed improvement with a Gen4.0 M.2 drive.

Yes I only have 8gb total with 2 slots used, the brand install is the hyperx fury @2666.
That's OK about the ssd I just wanted to make sure I was getting the correct mat.
Thank you again for all the advice just making sure I don't mess anything up, I know it's not the best pc out there but getting round to upgrading it after 2 years
