A standard after-market powersupply will not fit in the slimline case and your options may be severely limited.

Not sure about the video card. HP Specs list says PCIe X 16 and I don't know how backwards compatible PCIe2.1 will prove to be.

As long as you don't expect to turn it into a high end gaming rig, just about any low profile card will work. No PSU upgrade will be needed if you choose the right card. Gaming may even be possible, but only at low or medium settings (depending on the game). If decent gaming is what you're after, consider buying or building a full size system that accepts standard components.
