EVGA 1000W - G3 or GQ?

I found both of these for virtually identical prices and they both have 92% efficiency so I'm just wondering if theres really much of a difference between the two or I can just go for whichever one is cheapest?

The G3 is much better but also louder

With that being said you dont need that much wattage
As for EVGA dont bother and buy a Seasonic Foucs or a Prime Ultra

The idea is to have enough headroom for a shuntmod which will give me a total of 455 W power limit on the GPU rather than the native 280 W. Then again, I doubt I would be pushing that much through the card before the temp limit is hit and it throttles anyway. Maybe an 850 W would be good enough? Also, EVGA has a decade long warranty for their PSUs and seem to do a great job for a good price. Seasonics high end stuff costs a literal fortune and I don't really think I'll get much more use out of it other than saving a bit on my electricity bill every month since their efficiency is amazing.

Seasonic has a 10 year warranty on most of their models as well and the Prime Ultra has a 12 year warranty
As for the efficiency i did not say buy the platinum or the titanium models they have their Focus and Prime Ultra with gold efficiency if you dont want higher efficiency

Oh snap, my bad. I've only seen titanium and platinum seasonics so that was my ignorance in the matter. I'll check them out and see what prices they go for in comparison. c:

The Focus is often cheaper than the G3

Well, I had a look and the Seasonic Focus 850W gold cert PSU is better priced than the EVGA ones so thats good to know. The 1000W Focus is just a tad bit above what a Corsair or EVGA would run with the Prime being a rather sizeable jump up in price. What exactly does the Prime do better than the Focus and it's equivalents of other brands?

The Prime Ultra has slightly better voltage regulation and ripple suppression

The Focus has capacitors on the cables which makes more bulky and harder to bend where the Prime Ultra has removed those
Your old G2 also has capacitors on the cables by the way
