i just turned my new 1500$ Gaming pc on for the first time and SMOKE started coming out of it!, i shut it off the second i saw it was smoke, what do i do? what do you think the problem is? when i started the PC it took a couple seconds and it started booting into the bios, then smoke and i shut it off fearing the longer it smoked the more damage it would cause

Well maybe you didn't take the plastic protector of the CPU cooler? Maybe something is shorting out? Open up the case and take a look where it comes from :p .

There is a chance it's just something burning off something, dust or something. Does anything looked burnt? Where was it coming from? Might want to take it all apart and look, then put back together. Make sure nothing is shorting or rubbing.

Could be something short circuiting.
