I have both. Which one should I use?

The NEXG is based off an old group regulated platform:

Not too sure about the GQ (it also uses an FSP platform), but I have a feeling that it's the better pick.

As you have both, choose the GQ.

One is a poor entry level PSU and the other is a decent mid range unit. Easily the GQ without a doubt.

The GQ is better.

Though you shouldn’t need a 650w PSU, as 99% of builds don’t require that wattage, either 450/550 or 750+ for multi-GPU.

What are your full system specs? You will probably be better getting a Seasonic a Focus Plus, EVGA G3, Bitfenix Whisper, Corsair RMx 550w power supply.

I missed the part saying you had both. Use the GQ.

I already have these products in my house. Just wondering what was better.
