Hello,

So i build my pc in July 2018 and gradually upgrading it. My power supply (Aerocool VX-500) is the only sketchy part in my build because it came bundled with the case. I bought a used RX 470 in May 2019 10 months after i build my pc and use a dual molex to 8 pin to power it up because the psu doesn't came with a 8 pin nor 6 pin. Since then there is no issue at all when im gaming everyday, no smoke or burning from the dual molex to 8 pin. Im just worried that if i keep using this psu further and longer, it might kill my pc or i dont need to upgrade to a more reliable psu because i can use it without any problem. I cant buy a new psu right now for some reason and if possible, i don't wanna spend more in my build.

Specs:

Processor: Pentium G4560 (upgrading soooon)
Cooler: Deepcool Gammaxx 400
Motherboard: Asus H110M-E
Ram: HyperX DDR4 4x2gb
Graphics Card: MSI Armor RX 470 4gb
Storage: WD Blue 1TB
2 Case Fans
And the VX-500 power supply from aerocool...

All of the answer is highly appreciated, Thank you!!
