The PSU isn't going to 'blow up', no.

However the 1050TI is a 75W card that can get all it's power from the PCIe slot - something some HPs didn't always adhere to. Some were limited to 25W, but I'm not sure if the 8300SFF was one of them.

240W is low, but a 75W GPU and a 77W CPU... It should be ok, although the PSU is aged now too.
