It will honestly be fine with 500 watts, but a general rule is to go 100 watts above what you theoretically need.

so a 600 or 650 watt should be good for you.
but be sure to also get a good quality psu.
That PSU is a VANTEC almost 7 years old but still working
Question :--

Why is my power plug connected to the power supply from the wall plug to the Power supply end feels warm?

I know nothing of that brand which is a red flag it might be a low quality brand. The psu is probably the most important part of a gaming pc, it feeds everything and is put under high load for long periods of time. If it fails it can damage other components. PSU components deteriorate with time and usage. If it was my pc I’d be upgrading the psu first. A high quality psu will also come with a warranty that cover the whole pc in the scenario that the psu fails and damages other components.
