1. You tell us, we don't have your PC in front of us. Is it working?

2. Get a UPS.

Should be fine. There a chance the OS or something might of for corrupted and will fail to boot. Since it is up and running I wouldn't worry about anything.

Well, a power outage can sometimes cause unseen damage which will not always manifest itself at first. Taco is pretty certain her gpu died because of it at some point. Another issue I've ran into was windows corruption. It's not visible at first, just like in big corporations.

Please. Please do not overthink this like every other thread you've made thinking something was wrong with your PC.

Your PC works, it's fine.

Honestly, this isn't healthy to keep making threads everytime the most minor little thing happens.

+1 on getting a UPS. Ever since I started using them for my PC and living room setup I've had much more peace of mind about power outages and surges.

Well, time will tell. You never know if there was a surge present right before the outage, caused by ripple effect on electrons from other equipment on the main loadline when the power disappears. Sort of like induction, but a little different. You'll probably be fine though.

It broke my gpu a while back because we had very often intermittent flickers nd power outages due to wind. Then we moved out. My gpu lasted only a year.

ok but i am always panic :)
As others have suggested, get a UPS battery backup. The purpose of having one is so that you can cleanly exit any programs and power down your computer if you experience a power outage. The average consumer UPS units wont provide more than 5-10 minutes of power so don't expect to game during a prolonged outage.
