Take it easy with the commas and dashes.

If it short-circuited, then you did something wrong with installing it or the PSU was totally garbage.

You might want to look into the ASUS motherboards, I've never had any issues with them.
As for the PSU, get something of quality. Look into Antec, Enermax, OCZ, Corsair.

I'd assume your CPU and RAM is dead too if your saying the motherboard, PSU and GPU are dead. So to get all that in $400 is pretty difficult. Your going to need to increase your budget.

I am interested in what your PSU was when the accident occured. I would get to the bottom of what happened, before you start anew.

Also with your budget you wont be getting the same quality replacements...

Also are you sure that your hardware is truely dead??

Can't recommend MSI. If you weren't happy with a Gigabyte board, then you won't be happy with an MSI one imo.

I have to second the recommendation to get an Asus motherboard, they are usually rock solid and their support is great.

Well I would use the warranty to save a lot of money and then when the new cards come out sell your old stuff and buy new.
