How much cheaper is the 650W Gold?
Is 650w gold really enough for this build with rtx 2070 super or say 3070 super if released plus 4x 140mm pwm RGB fans with headroom? No plans to sli.

This is the list of all possible choices:
Seasonic Focus GM gold 650watts PSU, semi modular, pn: SSR-650FM - $91.95
Seasonic Focus GX gold 650watts PSU, full modular, pn: SSR-650FX - $102.26
Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum 650PX, 650watts PSU, full modular, pn: SSR-650PX - $123.28
Seasonic Focus+ Platinum 650PX, 650watts PSU, full modular, pn: SSR-650PX - $125.30
Seasonic Focus GM gold 750watts PSU, semi modular, pn: SSR-750FM - $102.85
Seasonic Focus GX gold 750watts PSU, full modular, pn: SSR-750FX -$115.19
Seasonic Focus GM gold 850watts PSU, semi modular, pn: SSR-850FM - $120.25

All converted into USD

Edit: added options for 750w

Why would 650W Platinum be enough but 650W Gold would not? We only talking about efficiency here.
If that's the case between 650w gold and 650w platinum then, should I just go for 650w gold which is the cheapest among the list, or go 750w gold or 850w gold for the safe side ? (as I am looking forward for rtx 3070 super if ever 3k series and its specs are true)
