A quality power supply with a high efficiency shouldn't "add" anything to system temperature (it doesn't actually add, as you cannot run without one (of course it could be out of the case)) The power supply basically draws mildly warm ambient air from the case with a fan and pushes it out of the case, so having a quality unit instead of an empty hole in your case could even lower the temps.
If you have a 25$ "xxxW" Super Value Elitecool Golden power supply, then yes, it will probably heat the system up by 2-5 C.
