The TV was in standby mode and i tought it was at least not on

So i took the cable from the TV and hooked it up to the PC which i tought i had told to shut down but it restarted so the PC was on and booting and when the HDMI cable touched the rear of the video card sparks came flying out of the cable and i got zapped

Took out the motherboard videocard and damaged the PSU

After that every time i have to touch a HDMI cable i make sure eveything is off at both ends and unpluged from the wall

HDMI cables have even killed a few PS3´s and 360´s here and there
They have quite a lot of power going through them so you can get zapped pretty hard i can say first hand

Could be wrong though.

Exactly
One thing never to skimp on is the PSU... That corsair i mentioned got stellar ratings, took a beating in bench tests etc, only to practically catch fire from a measly ati 4870 lol

Ya, test both cards especially if you think there is an issue with one of them.

What brand/model psu do you have?

Corsair are a bit overhyped

Sure they are not bad by any means by with so many people claiming they are the best thing ever Corsair has become a bit like Apple now

One last thing recommending brands is the worst thing you could do as all brands make something crap something good or better

Do you have an old gpu?

If you do test that, if it also has an issue it could be your mobo or psu. Although kingwin is usually pretty good.

What mobo do you have?

Some require an extra 4 pin molex near the gpu's for high end cards
