Here you find the cards HP offers:
http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00808962

Graphics
DVI ADD2 SDVO single head Graphics Adapter (SDVO connector) *
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 64-MB PCI dual head VGA**
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 55 64MB PCI low profile DVI w/TV-Out



NOTE:
* The dc5700 supports Normal (or Non-reversed) layout ADD2 (Advanced Digital Display 2) adapter cards inserted into the SDVO (Serial Digital Video Output) connector on the system board. This connector has the physical appearance of a PCIe x16 connector; however, conventional PCIe cards are not supported in this connector.
** Two NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCI graphics cards can be installed to provide support for four monitors.

It seems like you need this adapter:
DVI ADD2 SDVO single head Graphics Adapter (SDVO connector)
to run one of these graphics cards.
