Default Has anyone had any experience with the antec vp500pc?

Im curious if anyone here has had any experience with it, how would it fair with higher wattage graphics cards like the rx 580(and a ryzen 1200)?

What's strange? That a low-end power supply can work for 1.5 years?

Would probably be better to post that "something beefier" config instead of leaving others to guess :thinking:
