    Default Corsair AX860i, does the power supply fried my GPU?

    As title.
    Yesterday I was playing with my GTX980 Ti SLI using a Corsair AX860i.

    At some point the PC shutdown abruptly and it restared, my Asus X99 mobo said that the PC was shutdown due to unstable PSU.

    I don't identified the cause and continued playing, at some time I have seen some graphics artifacts when playing and the PC shut down.
    At the restart the first GPU was dead, black screen and post error.

    I removed the first card and leaved the second one one and the PC works ok.

    It is clear that the first cards is dead but is the PSU the coulprit?
    How can I know if I can replace my GPU and I don't need to replace even the PSU?

    Thanks

    Highly unlikely.
