use your PSU, it's better then your friends 400w
Really, amps are more important than watts in most cases. The 400W PSU also sounds old/generic branded, because I know that a Corsair CX400W 400W PSU maxes at around 30A, which means that less is directed on the 3.3V and 5V rails, while your friend's PSU's amps are mainly on the 3.3V and 5V rail instead of the 12V, which is where the graphic card gets its power. Just stick with your PSU, as suggested by ct.
