@Jahski , welcome to the forum.
Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will tell you how to measure the space where the card will be installed: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Gaming-Knowledge-Base/Upgrade-Video-Card/ta-p/7481981
You should assure that there is enough space for good airflow. This is extremely important!! The new video cards develop a lot of heat.
The power supply unit (PSU) will have to be upgraded, also. The current PSU is 500W. Here are the specifications for the card from XFX: https://www.xfxforce.com/gpus/radeon-tm-rx-5700-xt-8gb-gddr6-thicc-iii-ultra
It states that minimum PSU of 600W w/2x8-pin PCIe external power connectors.
