I know that you've had some pretty bad experiences with PSUs sfar, but what you are looking at are at the very end of the "very best" spectrum. If we have the worst on the left side of the spectrum and the best on the right, then PSUs like these are as far to the right as you can get. They almost need to extend the spectrum for these. So, the only way you'd experience any problems is if you were to somehow get a defective one, which is extremely unlikely with these.

Anyway, the only thing about a 650W PSU is, you wouldn't be able to have like two GTX 980 Ti's or R9 390s.
what if I just had one instead of two the 650 would suffice though right? Or should I get a 750 just to be safe and give enough head room for upgrade or o'c see this is where it starts to confuse me because of wattage I know from what you've told me the 650 would suffice for my current build but what about o'cing and upgrading and then probably o'cing that too

The only 'bad' thing about buying an overkill PSU would be wasting money. So, this is where it's all up to you. A high-end 650W PSU would be all the power you'd ever need if you never had more than one video card with a mainstream Skylake CPU.

Ok I understand so say I bought the evga g2 650 kept my Amd fx 8350 and had the r9 280x toxic sapphire and just overclocked it would suffice I guess?

see I'm taking into account what shilka said also about the RMx also I just can't decide and that's due to never having a evga product, I have the Corsair h100i and the fans have went unfortunately due to the bearings and I've only had it for about a year now that's what's putting me off the RMx due to those fan issues I've encountered

Then don't give Corsair your money. When it comes to PSUs, all you really need to worry about is what's on the inside, and the PSUs that EVGA used to make their G2 series are the Super Flower Leadex PSUs and they are extremely high-end.

 

Pretend that you're a billionaire and you're having trouble deciding on two of the world's best cars ever made but for some reason you can only buy one. It's like, just pick one. You will be extremely happy with it either way. It's not like we're dealing with budget-oriented PSUs here. We are dealing with the best of the best. The choices that you have before you are so good that you could make your decision based on the paint job and the name and other silly superficial things like that.

I'd be very surprised to see local stores selling PSUs this good. I'd also be surprised to see local stores selling such PSUs at good prices.

Wow. Next day delivery. You can't beat that! Here in the U.S. you'd have to wait 3+ business days after the store ships it out, so at least a week or more before you will ever see it.
