well you very well could have fried any number of components
e.g CPU, motherboard, ram

have you removed all of the components and tried to boot on a peice of card board? if not remove everything from the case and place it on a peice of cardboard with only
cpu + heatsink and fan, 1 RAM module, graphics card, monitor connected and obveisly the power supply connected.

this will eliminate the possability of the problem being a case short.
if this then boots we have found the problem it would be a case short if not then the problem is something more seriouse goodluck,

If ur motherboard doesn't have little metal circles around the screw whole then u need to put a washer inbetween the motherboard and the screw.
