So i finally got my computer parts from newegg, and after i finished building the pc, i pressed the on button, it turned on but nothing displayed so i open my case and i realized i didnt put the power connecting into the graphics card and i left the case open, i press the on button and my graphics card gave out smoke. So what can be my problems?

If that is correct and all connectors are in properly then bad card is the first that comes to my mind since they are not supposed to smoke.
