Default Asus P8Z77-V PRO smoking problem/graphic card

i had a Asus P8Z77-V PRO i brought around three months ago and lost the box with the Warranty , 1 week ago i installed a new graphic card a MSI Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (its duel width by the way) when i installed it, it look like it fit but a small piece on the end didn't go in, it went on and work for 15 mins, then i was cleaning up my cables and making everything look nice since i had the case open, i plug everything back in it wouldn't turn on after 30 mins of screwing around with it something on the motherboard starting smoking. i tired it again today all the lights when on on the motherboard but it wouldn't boot i try with the card in and out and nothing. i was just look for some help here on what i should do and if any one had a suggestion on a new motherboard that would fit my Graphic card

That PSU is not a reliable one, it could partialy be the problem. Were you working on your computer while it was on?
Did you follow ESD procedures?
Where on the board did the smoke come from?
Can you take a pic and post it here?
Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.
