Re: Motherboard broken yes/no?
If even your peripherals are burned out, I think the chances of you powering up your motherboard is well.. non existent. I'd really consider just getting an entirely new board, if the damage to your HDD and video card was that extensive, chances are you won't be able to salvage the memory or the CPU. you could always try your parts at a friends house or something that has a skt 939 motherboard, which might save you a few bucks here and there, but at this point in time where theres AM2s and C2Ds, it's not really worth it to repair a dead skt 939.
