Crappy old piece of junk, yes it's 650W total but including all 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails, there's only 360W worth on the 12V rail. Modern systems draw nearly everything from 12V so you're never going to be able to use the 650W.

 

Modern PSUs have much less capacity on the 5V and 3.3V rails and concentrate on 12V. Often they are able to give their full rating on 12V only.

Well I have a Micro-ATX motherboard, fx-6100, gtx 660 ti, 12 GB ram, and a 7.200 harddrive. Can that still function on that 360w psu?

I wouldn't risk it with a old, bad, used PSU. Just return and get something with lower chances of burning your house down 😉. Try getting something B-grade from this tier list: 

It's fine if it's used, I just recommend to spend at least a bit more because of safety concerns.

The PSU is about the most important part to not cheap out on. Not only does it pose a fire risk as explained by my fellow peers, but it could just immediately die and kill everything connected to it. If there is a large heft to the PSU, it may just be thicker metal they use to make it seem like it's more robust than it actually is. Even if it's just a non modular power supply, go with a trusted brand such as EVGA. Obviously, that's not the only PSU brand out there. As a very general rule of thumb, don't spend anything less than 50 bucks, and don't go for brands that have next to no recognition (i.e. some random Chinese brand of PSU). Hope this helps!
