    Default Which PSU is best for my build?

    I'm getting ready to put together a new build and have narrowed my PSU choices to the Seasonic G550(SSR-550RM) and the EVGA 550 G2. Which would you prefer?

    i5 4590
    Gigabyte GA-Z97-HD3
    EVGA GTX 750 Ti
    2x4 GB Hyper-X
    Cryorg H7 cooler
    Seagate 1 TB
    4 case fans
    DVD drive
    DVD burner

    I realize that 550 watts may be overkill, but it would allow me to upgrade to a bigger GPU in the future.

    Although both are very good i would prefer the Leadex-based platform of the EVGA G2 550.
    This platform has proven to be highly reliable and excellent performer as well!!
    I would say that it's probably the best 550 watt PSU right now

    P.S. Besides, the perfect 10 that was given from Jeremy at his review, speak for itself !!

    the 550 G2 is quiter and performs better. not much to consider between the two except price.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll add the EVGA to the shopping cart.

    Seasonic is too noisy. On my bench they also show quite high ripple. Not mentioning I am able to burn them

    CM V Semi-Modular (newer revision!) V550S or Silverstone Strider Gold S/Gold V2.0 are not bad either.
