[SOLVED] EVGA SuperNOVA vs Seasonic PSUs

Six years ago I built a solid gaming PC that works wonderfully (albeit under powered) today. I struggled with picking the right high quality PSU then, and settled on an EVGA SuperNOVA 750w PSU which has been fantastic (I guess the hallmark of a good PSU is one that works and you never even have to think about). Now I'm building a new build and planning to buy a new PSU with a new warranty instead of use the old one (does that even make sense)?

Does EVGA with its superNOVA line still make solid PSUs or is it better to play it safe and go with the apparent best and buy Seasonic?
Price is not a huge concern, quality and reliability is of paramount importance.

Thank you.
 
It is a good psu but 650 is more than enough for your build, 750 is better, 850 is unnecessary.

supernova what? G2/G3 are very good, nex is not.
rig specs?
budget and country?
I can't remember what kind of Supernova it was...

AMD Ryzen 7 3700x
Nvidia RTX 2080 Super
2x 8Gb Unspecified/undecided RAM
Seasonic FOCUS Plus Series SSR-850FX 850W 80+ Gold (what I'm leaning towards)
Unspecified/undecided x570 MOBO
Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Case


My country is Canada and my budget limit is $3,000 CAD.

That is a substantial price difference! I'll probably go for the high quality one, thank you!
