Default Corsair VS450 - how bad could it be?

Hi all, long time lurker etc etc. I've been reading this site for about 2 years and I love the detailed reviews and discussions on the forums, it's been an education. So thank you to all involved in making this excellent resource available

I have just built a system for my son, it has a Pentium G4560 and will run a RX 580 as max GPU for now. I used a spare VS450 I had bought as a spare in case one of my other PC's had a PSU death, but I was initially going to replace ASAP with something better. My question is, how bad is it really? For the use case (occasional gaming/browsing PC) would you recommend replacing it ASAP or running with it for a while and upgrading when other parts get upgraded? For reference, it has 1 SSD and 1 HDD, 3 x fans and the Pentium/RX 580 combo. What's the opinion of you regular forum members?

Thanks!!

It's about 2 years old, but for most of that time it's sat in a box unused.
