EVGA superNOVA 1000G2 1000W 80+ GOLD (Is it a good PSU)

Well I just noticed today that the PSU I had my eye on just jumped in price ($114 to $135 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1850bbefx ). Seems like the "After holiday mark up" for people looking to spend some holiday money. So while looking for another PSU to meet my criteria I saw this one. I know its overkill but I want full-modular, and a good reliable brand. My build ( http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2tJDk ) requires almost 800W not OC'd so 850Watts+ is a must unless I decide to go with a single R9 290X rebrand. I like Corsair and Seasonic, and only recently was I informed that many like the XFX are Saesonic rebrands. The EVGA 1000G2 superNOVA ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g21000xr ) was only a few dollars more ($159) so that leaves me asking...

My Question

Are EVGA rebrands or are they their own?

Are they any good- reliable, quiet, steady voltage w/ minimal flux?

Rebrands. The oem for their SuperNova line is FSP and Super Flower. The oem for 1000G2 is Super Flower.

Are they any good- reliable...

Use of chinese capacitors may be of concern to some.

I have an EVGA one and on the box it says it uses only Japanese ones.

It is fine to argue technical points, but do not insult others.
