Is it worth keeping this PSU?

Ok so long story short bought a gtx 760 doesnt work so im sending it back for a refund. I also bought a 650W PSU, is it worth keeping it for my 550ti or get the money back and use my 500w.
I have been told the 500w one isnt very good heres a link to its specs:

The 650w has also made my pc temperature rise a bit so should i go back to the 500w?

Thanks
My PC specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 2400
OS: Windows 8
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3
RAM: 8GB
Graphics Card: GTX 550Ti
PSU:EVGA Supernova 650G

  1. Thats a heatsink not a psu, try that link again?
  2. I would really like to have a spare, operational, Power Supply on hand. But my wife would rather have the money..
    If the 500w PSU will run the 550ti card, and you can get your money back, then save yourself some cash.
  3. Yeah think thats what im going to do
  4. When PC Labs reviewed the Xigmatek NRP-VC503 it died in a shower of sparks during load testing.

    The OEM being Solytech explains why.

    I can see why it can't properly power a system with a GeForce GTX 760.
