Neither one is likely to blow up your computer or set your house on fire (they're both reasonable quality, even if outdated and cheap), but the Seasonic does perform a bit better than the EVGA.

Then your setup is fine.

No electrical link, so bad grounding won't hurt the sound quality in the first place, so no issue there.
