I am at a loss in finding a GPU for this older computer (HP Pavilion A1710N). I know it uses a A8M2N-LA motherboard but I can't seem to find any GPU for it. Think y'all might be able to point me in the right direction? Make a few recommendations? Thanks so much everyone.

This is your computer correct?

According to this, you have 1gb of memory, and no specs on PSU. Before you get a new GPU, you may want to add more memory, and you will probably have to replace your PSU, and at this point, I would just rebuild the PC. If you don't want to however, look inside the case and tell us how many watts the PSU is rated for.

It has a PCI-e x16 slot that you should be able to use with any modern card.

The real concern is the power supply which will most likely be inadequate.
