Default Power supply unit or worse?

Ok so last night the power went out for a minute or two then came back on. I turned on my computer and after 5 seconds it turned back off. I don't know if the PSU blew out or if something else got fried.

The computer won't turn on so i figure its the PSU. I don't get how it would blow out 5 seconds after the computer turns on though. Is the PSU my only problem?

Current Build:
CPU: AMD x2 3800
Case: thermaltake tsunami
Ram: 2x1gb OCZ ddr4pc3200
GPU: 7800 GT
PSU: Antec 500w
Mobo: DFI lanparty

Will say PSU as well - do you have another one to test with? better yet - buy one and try it out - didn't work then return it to the store easy enough and got nothing to lose!

Good Luck
