If you're drawing 530W from a 500W power supply, your hardware will not last long. If you're somewhat lucky, the power supply will fail. If you're less lucky, it'll fail in a way that blows up the motherboard, or a CPU, or maybe a smoky mess when it goes...

Get a new power supply. One big enough to power your machine at less than 80% load- so, 700W minimum.
