XFX or EVGA (AU)

With the build I've currently been going at ( http://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/JustAGuy/saved/44nm ) there were a few things I wasn't so certain about, but w/ the 650W psu I was just wondering whether or not there was any specific difference that justifies the XFX being $35 dearer than the EVGA. Perhaps a dumb Q, but just wondering.

EVGA: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_1619&products_id=27010

Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

XFX = Rebranded Seasonic Seasonic is the best.

The XFX Black Editions are known to be excellent quality PSUs. Price of what you pay. Though I dont think the EVGA will be terrible quality either. Just get what you can afford :)

Edit: the handle just bugs me on the EVGA lol and typo...

As SethMatrix and GaldedRaw already stated, the XFX is a re-branded Seasonic. The EVGA appears to have a decent design but is below Seasonic/XFX quality due to components used and workmanship/assembly below that of Seasonic.
