EVGA G2 alternative

Could anyone recommend an alternative to the EVGA 650W G2 PSU? As its currently out of stock or overpriced and i'm sort of in a rush with this build.

Cheers!

I vote focus. I just got it for my new build I'm planing on sale for 70$.

Go with G3. Best PSU in its price range.

Just out of interest, how does the Seasonic FOCUS Plus Gold compare to other CPU's of it's price range (G2, G3, RMx, TXM etc...)

I understand that the difference between each one is negligible and they are all incredibly reliable but which one is the absolute best. From what I've seen the ripple control of the Seasonic unit is best out of all of them so I assumed that would be the best performer but am I missing something?

I would say the G3 personally. But the best of the best is the SeaSonic PRIME. Pricey, though.

What's makes the G3 more appealing than its competitors?

It’s smaller, voltage regulation comparable to the SeaSonic Prime, epic ripple suppression, superb build quality, all rails are excellent. I think it almost clears Platinum Efficiency on some tests.

Only notable flaw is that it fails the hold-up time test, but that’s nothing too major.

Sort
