Question Wich PSU should I buy? Core Reactor or RMx 2018?

Jul 10, 2020

I'll buy a new PSU and I'm in doubt betwen a Corsair RM650x and a XPG Core Reactor 750W or 650W.
The XPG Core Reactor 750W is at the same price as Corsar RM650x and the XPG Core Reactor 650W is $40 cheaper.
I'm new at building PC, so if someone could help me, I'll apreciate it.
Thank you for your reply!

If my system works near 600w, is it worth trading the quality of RM650x for more 100 Watts from XPG Core Reactor 750w?
Truthfully unless you are using dual GPUs or have a Threadripper 3970X there is almost no chance your system will use more than 650W. That said the XPG does have full support for the newest ATX specification which the RMx doesn't.
