If this is your power supply:

Then you should be fine with the upgrade as long as you don't go extreme on the card.
44Amps 12Volt on a single rail.
85% efficient
Active PFC
Just about what you would want for an entry level gaming machine.

"Cooler Master 550 w psu"

No necessarily a good choice. Which series is it - Elite, Extreme, GX, etc?

This article will help you with your video card choice, just make sure your power supply is adequate:
