Which EVGA 650 watt PSU they have 3?
If its the NEX aka G1 forget it its rubbish.
Why you should not buy an EVGA SuperNova NEX650G/750G (aka G1)

That one is not bad but not the best thing ever made either as it has rather average voltage regulation.

Corsair is way overpriced so dont bother.
The GS is average but its not bad, if you want better you should look the G2 and P2 series they do have a 650 watt model now.

You are aware that 80 plus has nothing to do with quality right?

Their selection sucks.

No I didn't. Thought those were supposed to be better. Here is all in the same range.

If you don't mind going used... My i5 2500k and AMD 7950 3GB are still kicking butt. I'm currently playing the Witcher 3 and don't have any problems running the game with this set up along with 8GB of DDR3 1600. This CPU and GPU run for $100-120 each at least that's the lowest I've seen them.
