I try to run My Nvidia 970 and get an Error during the boot, I suppose the Power was not ready with that kinfd of Hardware.
Could you please advise me.

@Spheric, welcome to the forum.
The newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012. I believe this is the reason that your 970 didn't work. The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series.
Your best option is, choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.
