Measure and check

You know the measurements for the video card, then you can open the PC and measure the area intended for card. It's really that simple. The HP system is typical desktop type case. Unless is a known obstruction it will work within your measured checking or not.

Try this the old fashioned way.

Take some paper bardboard and tape then cut out the cardboard to the dimensions of the video card. Make two and then use layers of cardboard (thick as the video board) to mock up the same size and test fit the cardboard model into this PC.
