System specs: HP Pavilion Elite m9500 Desktop PC series*-* HP Pavilion Elite m9510f Desktop PC Product Specifications - c01625662 - HP Business Support Center

Your board does NOT have a pci-e slot therefore you can't use that card. That's the downside to using prebuilt systems. They're all flash and no bang.

It does have a pci-e slot. It just lists it as a 1 PCI x16 slot. That card should be ok.
