EVGA 550W GD = $82

Corsair 550W CXM = 80

Coolermaster TUF Gaming 650W = $78 

Coolermaster MWE 550W Gold = $80 

 

 

Which should I choose?

Ryzen 5 3600X + 2060 Super

Small update, A store restocked and I found

Gigabyte GP-G750H 750W Gold = $84

Corsair CX 650W = $80

Gigabyte GP-G750H 750W Gold = $84

Corsair CX 650W = $80

 

My choices are now narrowed to

 

Corsair CX 650W = $80 (Since for some reason CX is a tier higher than CXM and I don't really need a modular PSU, id gladly trade modularity for 100 more watts) correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Gigabyte GP-G750H 750W Gold = $84. I've never really heard about this PSU but if it is better than the rest i wouldn't mind spending an extra $4 plus the 750W seems good for future proofing. It's also modular, again i don't really mind if a PSU is modular or not but it's a bonus feature for this one.

 

Cooler Master MWE 550W Gold = $80. I don't know much about this but since some of u guys think it's good I'll include it.

 

Which is worth it between the 3 guys? I'll be buying it in 2 days.

 

At this point im kinda leaning towards the Corsair CX 650W (Bronze) or Gigabyte 750W (Gold) mainly because of the higher wattage.

I would go for the Gigabyte G750H , its a decent unit with full modularity and the better performing of the two

why are you limited with this option , there is no gurrantee on how it performs , specially with a non major brandname PSU , they can have several platforms sold in different regions under the same model

Out of all the PSU I mentioned above which one is the best? Ignore the price.

They are all the same tier so it basically comes down to price and features

The Gigabyte G750H is a semi-modular 80+ Gold rated PSU

The Cooler Master 550w MWE Gold is a fully-modular 80+ Gold rated PSU

The Corsair CX650 is a non-modular 80+ Bronze rated PSU

All come with a standard 5 year warranty.

If they are within ~$10-15, the Gigabyte would be my choice due to higher wattage. Second choice would be the 550w MWE Gold for being fully modular and Gold-rated over the CX. CX would be last since it's a Bronze-rated non-modular PSU.

I was referring to ADATA  being new to the psu market , and ADATA's latest scandal with the black friday 8200pro where they scammed buyers and sent them an inferior model , it could do the same with psu's and have different platforms or oem manufacturers for the same model , even with reviews out i would never trust them with a sealed mystery black box where a user can never find out what he has got inside

I appreciate you not being subjective about it but  if we take all maters into consideration  ADATA doesnt have much to loose on its goodwill in the PSU market when compared to other major PSU brands with long history of credibility , they probably dont have a long term contract with CWT when compared to someone like corsair for example so they are more prone to find themseleves switching OEM's  and their very recent history of consumer fraud that showed how skewed of a moral compass they have all makes me unable to trust them with what is the contents  inside a mystery black box that they are sure no user will ever open it in order not to void the warranty

What's a CWT GPS?
And btw damn the store ran out of G750H they said they would restock on 1st week of February or something. 
I'm also kinda worried now. Apparently Gigabyte is not really the one that made the PSU? they just stamped their name/logo? I also don't see that much stuff about the PSU and some are saying to stay away from it.

Can my current Seasonic S12ii 520W still hold or should I just choose another PSU? What about the Corsair CXM 650W? = $75

a platform from psu maker CWT,  used in a couple tier b+ units

correct, that would be CWT here. it's used by many others, most famously Corsair

Any other suggestions around $80 or  4000PHP PSU? I'm not sure about the gigabyte because of lack in popularity and some people saying to avoid it. 
I shop here https://www.lazada.com.ph/     https://shopee.ph/    $1 = 51 PHP

How much better is the Gigabyte G750H compared to the Corsair CX650M? if not by much I'll take it. If you're worried about the price $80 is actually average decent PSU pricing in my place. The EVGA 650W Gold or something is a really nice PSU too only around $88 but in my place the price is $120

it's not hugely, the main difference being the topology. as cxm is a double forward it can start whining on higher end cards, which can be annoying, but not dangerous. the cxm would technically do just fine nonetheless, but I'd take cx over it
