Antec Vp500Pc 500W psu good?

I'm afraid none of those will do. Try looking for a System Power 9, Xilence Performance A+, Pure Power 11CM, or a Corsair CX550. Those are the minimum PSUs I'd use.

Also, don't get a 1060 3gb. RX 570 is just as powerful as it and more often than not, it's cheaper. If it's cheaper, then go for it.

Is the Antec Vp500Pc 500W a good psu to pair with the rx570 4gb?

Not really, you should look at the CX 2017 from corsair instead.

Potentially dangerous, but only in specific situations

So I keep my statement, no, it's not a good idea.

No, it's quite a bad group regulated design. It can only deliver 400w of usable power.

Looking at the picture above, it is indeed a group regulated design. According to the manufacturer, it lacks over temperature protections and over current protection. Honestly, I've seen worse designs, but I've definitely seen better.

I wouldn't use this PSU. I feel like it's a risk to put a load on this thing with modern components. You're better off saving up and buying a new one, like a Corsair CX550, Xilence Performance A+, or Be quiet! System Power 9.

Please don't. The Corsair CX, Cooler Master MasterWatt, and Xilence Performance A+ are so much better in similar price range. If you ABSOLUTELY cannot find those units, and can't afford more, a SeaSonic S12III or Corsair VS can do. But please, get one of the former 3.
