OK thanks. You have an OMEN by HP Desktop PC - 880-068.
To upgrade to the GTX 1070, you will need to replace the full sized ATX power supply to at least 500w minimum.
Check the requirements for the card your are going to purchase. It will most likely require an 8 pin connector (or 6+2 pin will also work).
Let me know if you have other questions.

I don’t mean to bug you with all the questions just want to make sure I get it right so I don’t screw anything up I found a bunch of 500 W power supplies for not too expensive but how do I make sure they work with my computer does any power supply work for Any computer

Lets start with one question at a time...
"Is there a better card i could go with that doesnt require such an upgrade at this time."
What is your goal with this upgrade specifically?
Ergo, what games are you playing and on what kind of monitor specs?
