If I consider replacing my components would the case have to be replaced also or is there no way the case could have caused the sparks?
Hi. I think your overclocked video card failed and fried the power supply. Sparking to the case is NOT good as TVeblen has explained. Any time you overclock you run the risk of damaging components. You need a new video card.
You need to dismantle and put back together your system to check out the short to the case.
