CX550 is around the same price for 50 less watts, is there a particular reason to choose the CX550 instead?

The Corsair CX is a higher quality unit compared to EVGA's BQ, and 550W should be more than enough for your components.

Higher quality - the EVGA BQ is mediocre. Also, the 3600 and 5600 XT combined use less than 300W under load

Well I don't particularly like a group reg unit and cx is a superior unit. Maybe look for segotep gold gaming psu or something.
