@ric_, welcome back to the forum.

 

Your biggest problem is that new video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  The motherboard can't be upgraded to UEFI.  The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series.  Also, you will have to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU).  The existing PSU is only 250W.  New video cards require a PSU of at least 400W.  I normally recommend at least 500W.  I like Corsair products.
