Which PSU is better Corsair TX 550M or Seasonic GX 550?

Just now, gac said:

Thanks for your reply. I was leaning toward the Seasonic because it was only $12 more expensive. My build is budget actually. Ryzen 5 1600, ASRock B450M PRO4, and MSI Radion 5500 XT 8 GB Graphics Card. I thought I would go for the Seasonic because price and availability. 

 

I would recommend the Seasonic one considering that you pay more/pay less 12$ but you get Full-Modular unlike the Corsair one, but that doesnt mean Corsair PSU sucks its really good. Both PSU are on the high level! You can check out this also PSU Tier List

 I'm looking at two 550W PSU's for a gaming PC.  Seasonic Focus GX 550 or the Corsair TX 550M. Any thoughts on these PSU's?

Seasonic is better. But that doesn’t mean the Corsair tx550m is crap, what’s your build? If the seasonic is more expensive it might not be worth it unless you have some higher end components

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

For 12 dollars I don’t think you can go wrong going for the seasonic. But @jonnyGURU has a compelling point, you could get a pizza for that money LOL (I’m just a very fat thinker okay?)
