The only thing you lose with the accessory belt is PS and Alt.
I did lose power steering and brakes. I checked the */c belt and it was nice and snug . I could peel the broken belt off of the alternator pully. Seemed like the tensioner locked up, because the location of teh shreaded part of the belt was right in the tensioner area. I may go and take a few pics in a bit.
