Question Is the Seasonic G12 750W Gold Wired Power Supply good? Can't find any reviews for it.

Short answer - no.
Long answer - it's made by Helly, essentially the same thing as 1st Player Armour AR which incidentally emerged in US market too recently. There are zero reviews on either but components choice don't look very good, maybe it's a decent budget PSU but we need reviews to confirm that.
There are a lot of good PSUs for this price in UK, ADATA XPG Core Reactor, Bitfenix Formula Gold, Corsair TX-m, MSI MPG A-GF, Seasonic Focus. Don't fixate on wattage, if you're considering such cheap PSU you should be okay with a 650W PSU, 550W even. And if you really need a 750W one, i advise you to raise the budget a bit for Corsair RM-x or be quiet! Straight Power 11.

Okay thank you, so I was right to be wary of it, thanks for the recommendations I'll take a look at them now.

if it's not can anyone recommend one around the same price and wattage.
To give some examples from that site something like this if you really need 750watt, but looking at that old psu might you well be good enough with 650watt and maybe even less depending on hardware you have,

can get the 650watt version for the same price as the Seasonic you linked, likely enough wattage.

Another 650watt,

or again the 750watt version if you really want it,

Same goes for the RM series from Corsair,

If you want to know what wattage you really need give some pc hardware specs. Think you'll be just fine with any of those 650watt models.
