Are you sure the motherboard is still good? Maybe when the PS went out it took the motherboard with it. If you have another video card try putting it in and see what happens

But would my harddrive and stuff still boot up if the mother board was bad?

They could still power up but the screen could be blank if the MB is bad. When you have a bad MB, RAM or CPU the computer can power up but you wont see anything on the screen.
