Three things need to be true to install and successfully boot an Nvidia 1000 series graphics card:
1. UEFI BIOS,
2. 500 watt or greater power supply with the correct supplemental PCIe power connectors,
3. A PCIe 2.0 or 3.0 x16 slot and the required room in the chassis to fit a dual slot 10.5 inch or greater length graphics card.

Your computer uses a PCI Express 2.0 x16 port for graphics cards. Thankfully the GEFORCE GTX 1070 runs on this sockets perfectly.
You will also need to make sure you have a Power Supply capable of at least 500 W.
You can also update the BIOS to make sure everything is up to date:
