I have the HP Pavilion 550-153w and I want to put in EVGA GeForce GTX 950 FTW GAMING ACX 2.0. Will my system handle it?

The question would be why? What do you want for it? A particular game?
Of concern is the i3-4170 processor. If it's a game, go to game-debate and do the "Can I play It".
The GTX 950 peaks at 90W. Your system would require a minimum of 350W. I would recommend a Corsair CX 500, provided that your processor is sufficient (which I really doubt).
