yeah ur psu u blew up, if u were looking at the back of ur pc when u it happened u woulda saw one hell of a display lol, this big ball of blue electricity jus pops out.
it happened to me once when my idiot dad changed the power from 250 to 135 on the powersupply thing, i turned it on and bang lol.

Listen to Gearbox. Do NOT purchase a cheapo psu or you will have the same problem. A decent video card needs clean power.

Don't pick up no cheapo PSU that comes with a dang ol' case. Choose from the list of brands in Gearbox's post, and do try to spend $80+ on a realiable PSU from a good brand.

Coming and Going.
