I was hoping that someone could give me some ideas on possible graphic cards that I could look at. I currently have the https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05867098
I’m looking at upgrading the graphics card and I’m willing to spend around 400. I also want to upgrade the power supply and ram. I’ve never done this before and I’m not sure what will be compatible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ve set aside about 650 in total for the upgrades if that helps.

Which graphics card you buy really depends on what you want it to do as far as what games you play, their settings and what monitor you are connected to.
Basically you can install any of the modern graphics cards available as long as they physically fit length wise in the case, and you have the adequate PSU. But realize you don't have a very powerful CPU either. So I wouldnt get to crazy on a graphics card unless you planned on upgrading the cpu also. Again, depends on what games you play.
Your PSU (power supply) is the full ATX form factor. I would recommend a modular PSU so you have more control over cable management.
So its hard to tell you what card to buy as I don't know what your expectations are.
With your current CPU, up to a GTX 1660 ti would be a reasonable choice with little bottle-necking from the Ryzen 1400 paired with a 1080p 60Hz monitor.
