that's an old PSU and I would skip it. if you want a decent PSU that is cheap, newegg has a sale on the antec 430w for around $30 after rebate, corsair has a similar offer for their 430w.

possibly, its an old design and not very efficient. it may state 500w but most of the amps will not be on the 12v rail that powers your cpu and gpu.
