Re: Computer just blew
Hate to be the negative one, but the popping sound you heard could well have been from caps on the graphics card as well, don't rule it out. Chances are, if your PSU did go south, it could have taken the card with it. Happens alot.
I've seen popped caps on GPUs from PSUs many times, mainly on older cards though. I would also say, get a little piece of insulated wire with bare ends and connect the green pin of the 24-pin mobo power to any of the ground cables. Obviously disconnect and remove the unit from the case first, place it on an antistatic or lint free surface and plug it in. This should turn the power unit on, just give it a sniff. It should be painfully obvious if it's dead.
