Alright here's the story. *Didn't know whether to put this under graphics or this category.. :'[*

I ordered a Cosair CX430 psu and a EVGA 9800GT gpu. I had temporarily connected the psu to the motherboard and the gpu without mounting it inside the case. Just to test if everything worked out fine. It did, but....I left a cup of water on my desk right above it and knocked it over... Water spilling inside the psu, where the fans are, while it was on... Lots of load popping and my computer shutting down...

What I was wondering was if this incident could have cause my gpu to fry? I need to whether or not I need a new gpu or not so how can I tell? Obviously I'm getting another psu...I know that thing needs to be buried and blessed because of my terrible ownership.
