Default NZXT HALE90 750W Explosion

Yep. My psu blew up tonight when I turned my system on taking out my 6870 along with it. Not sure what else may have blew but holy hell was it loud. My daughter was on my lap at the time and got quite the fright. Not sure what to do. I bought the psu on kijiji off a store that had closed down so I have no receipt nor a paddle to paddle up sh!t creek with it seems.

Edit:
Added images for those who interested in that sort of thing. As you can see the damage on the 6870 is pretty obvious. The damage to my ga-z68a-d3h-b3 is a little harder to see but the gray areas near the pci-e x16 and that capacitor there are burnt spots.
