Ahh, the hardest part to decide on. Hope all is well.
Between these two PSU's which would you recommend? I dont plan to upgrade my GPU for sometime as this is mostly used as a workstation PC, but i added a 3090 too see the estimated wattage, it came out to 530w. Do you guys think a 650w would suffice or should i get a 750w for headroom?

Power Supply: Super Flower Leadex III Gold 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($109.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: EVGA G3 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($129.99 @ Monoprice)

Nothing less than a 750. BTW, the G3 is made by Super Flower, so just get the Super Flower since it's cheaper than the EVGA.

For a 3090 I'd go with the 750W. Overall both the ones you listed are very good, however, I'd go with the Super Flower.

Yeah, i want to get one thats produced by Super flower. I was just wondering if the $20 EVGA price prem would be worth it for the support/RMA/warranty as they are well established.

So, basically what you're saying is that you may be willing to spend the extra $20 as a sort of 'insurance' in case you have a problem because you think EVGA may have better support. We're talking about some of the best power supplies made so I don't see that as an issue, but I don't have any great insight about support for either company.
