    Default EVGA or Corsair?

    I want to buy a PSU but I dont have much time to decide which one so I come here for advice.. These are the only two decent PSUs available for purchase right now in my country Corsair Tx750m and EVGA 750 G3 (both worth 160$ here)

    CPU: i7 4790 3.60Ghz
    Ram: 16gb 1600mhz Corsair
    Mobo: Asrock H97z Pro4
    GPU: nothing yet and it will take long time to buy one (maybe 1 year and which GPU do you recommend?)
    Case: Thermaltake Element G (2 120mm case fans)
    HDD: 500gb 7200Rpm Samsung

    I know, that's too much watts for my build but I only have those two to buy right now.. I'm also wondering if that many extra watts is going to be a problem?

    Already read a lot of threads so here's some answers that you maybe will ask

    No, i cant get the RMX series because theres only 2 (850>415$ and 1000>300$) on the web "market" (is something like Ebay) and they are too expensive
    Here are other options with less watts
    EVGA 650w G3 for 155$
    EVGA 600B 92$
    EVGA 650BQ 170$
    Thermaltake Tr2 600w 125$
    Corsair CX600 90$

    PS: It is really hard to find PC parts here, you will only find brands like Unitec, Antec, Sentey, Myo, Delux, Compaq, Agiler, Wash, xTech, Etc (PSU) In a Store
    For components like motherboard almost all of them are a brand made for the goverment, and buy anything from outside its not an option, because you have to pay a really high TAX, for example if you bring a PSU (90$?) the tax is 100$-150$ plus the price of the PSU = 190$-240$ for GPU is 200$+ (Tax)

    Edit:I forget to mention that I live in an country with poor power line quality, fluctuating, and these are the best PSU's I can afford (750w TXM/G3 160$)
    all prices are value in USD

    300-500 watts and all of them are generic, not certified and around 20$-50$

    I already have the money to buy any of those that I mention in the first post (my budget is 160$) but idk which one.. I dont care the noise, etc.. I just want the "best" one of those that I said in the first post

    best?

    * Longest lasting?

    * Most efficient?

    * Best regulated voltage?

    * Least ripple?

    * Best over current/voltage/power protection?

    * Longest hold-up time?

    * highest intake temperature?

    and this list is far from complete.

    I do not want to be rude or something but as I said before, I dont have too much time to think about it! that's the reason I come here for a second opinion!!

    Can you guys please stop asking questions and just tell me (your opinion) which one of all FROM THE FIRST POST would be the better one to buy??!!

    I know you guys just want help me to understand but I dont have time, if I dont press "Buy" someone else will do it or the price will rise up in a single day..

    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC

    The problem is.. I need a PSU, even if I dont have a GPU, why?

    Thats my setting, the wired of my Actual PSU (300w generic) they are not long enough and I cant place it in the right spot, it has to be below of where it is now, I cant closed my case because of that too and many others things..

    For Third Time Please just tell me (what you think) which one PSU I should buy from the first Post

    If you value functional protections, but don't mind low hold-up time, look towards the TXM.

    If you value slightly better electrical performance, in spec hold-up, but improperly configured over power / over temperature choose the G3.

    Hold up time can be important with unstable power grids.
    Protections can be important in the case of high overclocking (near PSU ratings), or in the case of a short circuit or fan failure.

    Both are rather loud.
