GT13-0024 Model. I am just trying to upgrade the graphics card to one that will fit and what else I might need to get with it. I tried using pcpartpicker and it stated I might need more pci cables to connect. I just can’t verify because the motherboard isn’t listed correctly on this website so I can’t find it on partpicker either.

Welcome to our HP User Forum!
Nvidia recommends a minimum of 750 watt PSU for an RTX 3080. Your OMEN 30L GT13-0024 Desktop PC as per OMEN 30L GT13-0024 Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support says it is equipped with a 500 watt power supply.
I am sorry to say that a 500 watt power supply is not even close to handle an RTX 3080, you'll have to look out for a power supply upgrade if there is one*.
[*EDIT:] Here are some recommended PSU upgrades (Antec HCG850 Gold Power Supply 850 Watt) as seen here: HP Omen 25L / 30L Power Supply Swap How To! Tutorial! GPU Upgrade Information! - YouTube, or this PSU upgrade (Corsair RM 750x Power Supply 750 watt) as seen here: HP Omen 30L PSU Upgrade: Preparing or future upgrades!!!! - YouTube.
And would an RTX 3080 even fit dimensionally (LxWxH) inside your desktop? You would have to carefully measure what graphics card would actually fit in your desktop. And then you'll also have to make sure that there's sufficient air movement through your chassis to cool your higher performing GPU.
Hope this was helpful.
