    Case and point, the actual cost of materials to make an RM750 vs. an RM650 is less than $1.
    Wow, interesting insight into PSU economics! Thanks again for the help, everyone

    Yeah, I can see that now that I'm looking for it. What makes the RMx special again, please?

    Corsair RM 650 == R1 900 = USD95
    Corsair RMx 650 = R2 020 = USD101
    Corsair RM 750 == R2 020 = USD101
    Corsair RMx 750 = R2 080 = USD104

    RMx 2018 is a higher quality power supply. However RM 2019 is newer and supports ATX version 2.52.

    You can't see the cost difference between PSU's back in the retail prices by the way. It just means that the margin is bigger with the higher wattages from the same series. That's the biggest reason PSU manufactures want you to buy a higher wattage model.

    You have that backwards.

    They make LESS margin on the lower wattages from the same series. That's why they want you to buy higher wattages. Because manufacturing computer components isn't a fucking charity.
