I just hope that your PSU didn't fry other parts in the computer
Yeah... Is there any way to check? I could see myself spending weeks RMA'ing things and putting new things and just ending up with a sack of useless parts in the end because maybe everything is fried...

Thanks for all the help and reassurance everyone... I'd be fleeing the country right now if it weren't for you guys
