Too late, but thanks.

Also, search for a rocker switch than select between 115/230 Volt - perhaps that is now at a wrong selector setting for your region?

read Amazon customer reviews: Customer reviews: Apevia Java 500W ATX Power Supply

and reviews from Newegg (click on the Reviews tab there):

APEVIA WIN-500XSPX 500W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply -

more bad reviews than good; some people may be lucky if that PSU still keeps working but others not so fortunate; replace ASAP

As to a UPS and a PSU. If your PSU is active, you NEED a UPS that is compatible with active power supplies. I'd email the UPS manufacture to make sure. That's what I did when I bought my UPS.

I bought this one: CyberPower CP850PFCLCD UPS 850VA / 510W PFC compatible Pure sine wave -

Newegg may have a Canadian version, or search for that model with vendors in your area.
I bought a cheapo because I had no idea if the motherboard was fried or not and it all powered up. How long it lasts is another matter but since I'm getting a little experience, I'll keep your suggestions in a bookmark for next time. Thanks.

Thanks all for your responses. The lights are fine in the UPS and the computer is up and running so nothing was damaged. I figured it would cost more to take it in than test it myself. Now I can get a better PSU like the ones suggested by you guys in a bit. I appreciate all your answers and would have answered sooner if I'd gotten a notice before now. For some reason, I only got one today.
