old card died and tech threw in a basic video card (ie low resolution, no HDMI output) and did not return old card for identification. A teck recommended a MSI GeForce 710 2GB graphics card as being good, dependable and reasonably priced. It is shown to have a PCI Express 2.0 buss. Can I use this one or go to a higher level ( GT730, GT750, GTX1050)?

@mgjim, welcome back to the forum.
None of the cards that you mentioned will work in your motherboard. They all require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS. The BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI. HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012. The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series.
Your best option is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system. They are the experts on their products. This will save you a lot of time, frustrations and money.
