EVGA G2 vs Seasonic X 850W

I'll be using these PSUs for a 5820k / 980 Ti system. I might want to SLI in the future, so I want that extra headroom.

I can get them for the same price, so which one should I get?

Thanks

the G2. it performs better, runs quieter, has a longer warranty, has better sleeved cables and the length is better on EVGA cables. the X-850 was the class of high end 80+ gold three years back, today it's the G2.

I was leaning more towards the G2 mostly because of the cables. They look a lot better than those offered by Seasonic. I guess I'll go with EVGA (even if I have to wait an extra week because my local store doesn't have it in stock). Thank you!

My opinion is I'd prefer the seasonic x 850w, evga g2 is good also, can't really go wrong with this.
