I have an AMD phenom II x6, 8 gb of ram, a GTX 560 2 GB oc GPU

I had a 500 Watt PSU that came with this case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I was in the middle of playing BF3 and it just turned off, and now wont turn back on. I know the PSU went out, but im hoping and praying it didnt mess anything else up

my question is.. what are the odds that it fried anythings else it was connected too?

what watt psu should I get next? i was thinking at least a 750?

Power Supply
500W(Model:D R-8500BTX)
Power Supply Mounted
Top
PSU Main Connector
20+4Pin
Motherboard Compatibility
Micro ATX / ATX

that is the only specs is shows for the PSU that I have.. any help would be greatly appreciated

TY, i appreciate the timely reply

do you think there is a chance it fried anything.. i know its hard to say, and it would be purely speculating but was wondering ur opinion

I also have an old soundcard, a creative something another.. the reason I say this.. i am wondering if 550 watt would be enough, considering im using it for gaming.. i know the 500 watt I have prolly went out cause it was generic tho

Yes it's enough , you won't know what else was could have been damaged until they are checked out.
