I have a Antec VP500 PSU for my system. I am buying Amd RX 580 8 Gb graphics card. Will the 500 watt PSU be enough for RX 580 or i should buy another PSU?

Looks like that's a dual rail platform? There's a sticker on the side of the unit. Does it have two 12V+ columns? One 24A and one 21A? Not knowing which rail feeds the GPU, I assume the worst that it can only do 252W to the GPU.

I'd say buy a better quality single rail PSU. Something 550W and 80+ Bronze efficiency.
