Sure it would. But how big is your case? If its a midtower then you should be fine.
Your PSU will support it too but it is of questionable quality so I suggest you be cautious with it...

With your current system + the 550 Ti, you should be fine. It should be much less than 600W.

ATX is fine but to be safe, just check the dimension of the 550 Ti you plan to buy & measure the available space in your case. I did this actual measurement 3 years ago when I have an ATX case & selecting my GPU upgrade. Now I have a mid-tower so I do not worry much about anything. :)

It is more accurate than what the graphics card manufacturer recommend themselves because they add a lot of buffer capacity by just assuming other components. But the PSU calculator at least use the specified power consumption of each of your component.
