AGP boards are quite hard to install correctly, they can be very tight in the slot.

1. Make sure graphics card is fully inserted all gold contacts disappeared fully into slot.

2. Ensure memory sticks also fully inserted

3. Case speaker connected? for POST BEEPS beeps required for diagnosis of startup faults.

Would doubt if cpu faulty if MOBO suitable for CPU

in a few examples cases were made so when fitting the motherboard with the provided spacers it took the motherboard below the correct settings for some AGP cards /PCI cards to fit correctly leaving a apparantly dead machine..As Fruit Bat has indicated check the card .looking for the contact strips showing above the slot. one way to get around it is raise the whole motherboard slightly by adding small fibre washers on top of the spacers its usually enough to get the Agp card to sit correctly.

If your psu blew then it could have took any of the components with it.
Only way is to try the video card in another pc or another video card in yours.
Its all down to testing each part in turn to find out which are good and which arent.
