Thank Mauro,

	I rebooted again and I can get to the bios/grub display just fine now. Must
have been a transient issue..

	NUT shuts the box down when the UPS hits 15% remaining (CyberPower CP1000AVRLCD
... I really like these UPS's). The box shut down just fine, I think the boot
limit was reached which caused fsck to run. I have no explanation for the
missing 8800gt after the power outage. I guess there was some stray voltage that
went somewhere when it happened. Looks like it is all back to normal now.
