@ogol7, welcome to the forum.

 

The motherboard is compatible with the GTX 1080.  However, there are two things to consider:

 

1) the length of the video card.  Most of them are at least 10.5" in length.  You should measure from the Back I/O ports to the front of the case to assure there is enough space for it.

 

2) does your power supply unit (PSU) (600W) have the appropriate supplemental power connector/s?  The ones that I have reviewed have at least one 8-pin power connector.

wrong forum, this is the workstation/business forum you want the consumer forum  for future posts

 

a quick tip:

look at the HP quickspecs for your system, note the fastest video card hp offers, then find out the max wattage of it

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04829055

 

 

the fastest card was a 980TI, and the nvidia spec page for that model shows 250 watts with 600/900 watt supply recomended

 

https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-980-ti/specifications

 

so you can use ANY VIDEO CARD THAT DRAWS UNDER 250 WATTS

(i recomend staying under 200 watts with your pc's 600 watt power supply)

 

normal GTX 1080 cards draw 180 watts so this will work, i would not use the overclocked 1080's that draw 250 watts

on a system that has a a 600 watt power supply

 

https://www.geforce.co.uk/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-1080/specifications

 

you  might also need a quality 6 pin to 8 pin GPU power adapter
