Question PSU health

At 10 years it’s out of warranty, if it does fail you are not covered. For that alone I would not risk a new build on it.

I don’t think any of that information tells you anything substantial. When reviewer test psu’s they use some specialist equipment to get meaningful results.
 
Just curious if these voltages are ok for my PSU. It is a 10 year old Corsair TX650w. I'm going to be building a new PC and since I'm at max budget with the parts I bought, I'd like to know if this PSU is still doing ok. First pic is from hwmonitor, the second is from my bios. Thanks!

Those voltages are in spec (except 3 mV out on the 3.3V in HWMonitor, but that's pretty insignificant)...however I would lean on replacing it due to its age (especially with a new build).

Would a corsair cv550 do the trick?
Depends what the equipment is. The VS (and CV, which is the VS tinkered for 80+ Bronze certs) are still entry-level, even if much improved from the previously un-buyable PSUs in the VS line. If this is an office machine or something with a low power GPU (1050 Ti, even a 1650 Super), that's acceptable, but if this is something that has either more power-hungry low-midrange cards (RX 470/480) or higher end GPUs (the newest AMDs and 2060 and up from Nvidia), I'd want to be a little more ambitious.
