I was playing Lego Marvel Super Heroes and all of a sudden the power went out, I am confident it had something to do with my computer.

After it blacked out I got the power on again at home for everything except my computer.

When I tried to start it again nothing happens and I am very scared about what has happened.

From what I could figure out I believe that the power supply is the problem because there is no light, no fans, no nothing going on when trying to start it.

But I am also scared that it could be the motherboard after reading a lot online, I have warranty so I'm currently waiting on a new power supply.

What do you guys think is wrong?

I'd be happy to answer any questions and my pc build is in the link below.

From your description, it certainly sounds like the PSU failed. You won't know whether any further damage has occurred until the PSU is replaced.

Okay, I certainly hope that nothing else has been damaged.
