They don't seem particularly happy with the 12V stability. Also, this appears to be an older design, as the review is from 2011. But, I'm not sure if the ST50F-PB is the same as the SST-ST50F-PB.

This page says it's only got 38A on the 12V rail - that basically means 456W. So, it's not quite a 500W PSU per se.

Older design, and I can't find any more than the one review, from 9 years ago. I would not gamble with it on a modern system with an expensive new video card.

See the first link in my sig for an excellent guide of what to trust vs what to avoid.

Find a GOOD online PS wattage calculator and figure out the maximum watts you will need with everything plugged in and then use a PS that has a little headroom. You don't want to run your PS maxed out.
