Hello
is it this model?

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05266955

Thimphu motherboard specifications.

 

Personally I would tell you just don't think about it!
In theory, under certain conditions it would be possible
But your motherboard is in PCI gen 3, not gen 4
So the card will not work at full capacity
possibly the previous rtx 20xx series, but it seems harder to find sometimes
the case is not very large, risk of overheating with some more powerful graphics cards

 

So, if you decide to replace it check the dimensions, the power supply recommended by the manufacturer, and if you have

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

  • Form Factor: Full-height PCB with ATX dual slot bracket
  • Dimensions: 10 Layer / (4.4 in x 10.5 in)

Total power consumption: 180 W

Internal 500 W (100V-240V)

the required pci connectors. ( 6 pin 8 pin ? )
