ok i have 2 power supplies but not sure which one to get its either the silverstone ST40EF 400w or the hiper 580w type m both are around the same price
all it has to power is a 3700+ 2 hard drive 1 dvd drive and a few fans
also it needs to be able to power like a 1950xt or something around there when i upgrade

Yea, both are good brands, I'd trust the Hiper with your system. or the silverstone. Not sure how the silverstone is/will hold up with the 1950xt possible.
