@GTXBlade , welcome to the Community.

 

Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will help you know what to consider when upgrading your video card: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981

 

The three main things to consider are: 1) the length of the card.  The article explains how to measure the space where it will be installed to assure there is enough space for good airflow; 2) the wattage required to run the card properly and 3) does the card require any 1x6-pin, 1x8-pin or both PCIe power connectors.

 

The motherboard in your computer is HP proprietary. It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector. You will have to buy any PSU upgrade from HP.  The PSU in your computer is 310W.  You will have to check to see if it has any of the PCIe power connectors.  HP has a 500W PSU (L05757-800) that is compatible with your motherboard.  Here it is on HP PartSurfer: https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L05757-800

 

You can order it by clicking the box next to "Add to Cart".

 

Hint: You can get the measurements of the video card that you want to install and make a template out of cardboard the same size.  This will let you see how it will fit.

Thank you for the additional information, @GTXBlade!

 

I didn't know that you are in Sweden.  In your thread it shows that you are in the US.  You should contact HP Customer Support to see if they can help you locally.  If not, you won't be able to upgrade the PSU.
