Just need a quick answer about a PSU, corsair builder 500w 80+

Hey all, does anyone know the difference between the 2017 model corsair builder 500w 80+ and the previous model corsair builder 500w 80+ ? The previous model just went on sale for $16 so i am trying to decide whether to buy it or is the $20 more worth it for the new version or should i just get a EVGA 500w1 when it goes on sale for $25 again? Thanks for answers :)

They are totally different. I assume you mean the old CXM vs. the new CXM. The new one is much much better and the W1 is worse than even the old CXM.

then what kind of PSU would you recommend for under $30?

If you are using mail in rebates the 450W CXM hands down.
