Seem both of these on custom sleeving sites, does it matter?

If so a why?

Also, any other info is welcome :D

 

I may be wrong.

lower number = lower resistance = higher current capabilities

Lower is better?

i plan to go for a psu with 70 amps on the 12v rail

so..16 gauge?

I may be wrong.

Go with the 16 gauge wire, it's slightly thicker (1/4 of 1mm), but has much better current capacity.

 

Realistically, it shouldn't matter much, but I'd just go with the thicker gauge to be safe.

As in, is it an 8400 and GTX 1060, or a 7980XE and Vega?

You read my profile.

Or im asuming yes, not the latter.

I'm simply buying my stuff before my upgrade to an 9700k and 2080ti

I may be wrong.

Those components don't draw much power at all, so 18AWG is definitely fine.

Right my power supply does 70 amps on the 12v rail will this also still be fine?

The components only draw as much power as they need. And they don't need anywhere near 850W.
