You're fine with the PSU you have. I tried looking up the PSU on Newegg but couldn't find the RV500. I did, however, find the RD, RP, and RE500 PSUs, and they looked to be fine. Your system isn't a very power-hungry one, so you should be fine.

Software isn't reliable in testing whether a PSU is dieing. You could get a multimeter and test the rails, but I don't think you even need to do that. As long as your PSU isn't near the limit of it's power consumption, you shouldn't have any problems with it for quite a few years.

Just wait until your next build and then get a new one.
