I turned on my computer and began playing a game. After only about a minute, my computer shut off. I pressed the power button to turn it back on and in response my power supply shot out sparks with a loud "pop". It also emitted the scent of burned wires. After this, I attempted to boot up my rig once more. It powered up. But, there was one problem. I had no video output. I thought perhaps that my video card had fried so I replaced it with a spare I own. No dice. I have since replaced my motherboard and cpu to no avail. I powered my computer with a very wimpy power supply (my good one exploded). Could this explain the lack of video? I even tried a different video cable! What could possibly be going wrong? This is practically a completely different computer.

TL;DR
Computer exploded, all new parts except for case RAM and HDDs. Replacement PSU possibly too low voltage. Powers on, no video.
