Hi is there any reason not to go with a Seasonic Prime TX 750 other than cost? I'm looking for the best of the best here for my build. Thanks!

Depends on the build, if it's gonna be used with RTX3080 (or more so, RTX3090) then the answer is yes, as it likely isn't going to work. Besides, it's not 'the best of the best' anyway, not that it matters much, there are a lot of very good PSUs that are a lot cheaper.

Thanks guys.
@Juular Regarding the RTX 3080... I could see myself upgrading to such when supply returns to normal. Nvidia's web page says 750W required power. I'm guessing this is for the founder's edition. Also ASUS's models require 750 or 850 depending on the model. Is it too close for comfort? I don't mind going with non-oc'd card 5-10% performance doesn't matter to me.

nVidia wattage recomendation is a bit off but most 750W PSUs handle RTX3080 allright, Seasonic Prime doesn't. Either buy 850W minimum or don't buy Seasonic.
