All PSU's that aren't bombs have a active PFC which means it will automatically switch the voltage, no need for a switch If you do find a PSU with a switch that is a sign that is based on a very old design and is likely a terrible unit.

Also efficiency has nothing to do with how good a PSU is. In fact you really shouldn't worry about it at all outside of 24/7 usage under heavy load. Also people tend to under estimate how far wattage will get them these days since a 750W is good enough for a i7 8700K or a 1800X plus two GTX 1080 Ti's or two GTX 1080's for 650W. Outside of extremes/oddities you typically won't need more than a 550W (the lowest wattage high end PSU's tend to come in) for a gaming build with only a single GPU.

What is your build and what is your budget?
