connected asus gforce 9800 gx2 and now pc wont turn on

hi there, i recently brought a 9800 gx2 for cheap but wanted to try it in my pc to see if it actually works. ive got a asus maximus v gene mobo and a tx750m power supply. so i connected it up but the graphics card requires a 8 pin and a 6 pin, i only connected the 6 pin. powered the pc up and it didnt turn on but i heard a little sound on the power supply and say a little spark. Me thinking the power supply dont work any more, i want a got a new one. got the CX750m, connected everything up with my normal cards (2x 6870s (CF), PC still dont turn on. What is the problem. Plz HELP

    It's possible you destroyed your motherboard or cpu when you saw the spark. Does the motherboard show any signs of power?

  2. the spark was in the power supply and yeah the mobo does show signs of power as the lights on the board power up
