firstly, we don't reply by email and you should edit your post to remove yours unless you like getting spammed.
Secondly, Since you are up for a new motherboard and powersupply anyway it might be time for a whole new system. You may be able to get a suitable used motherboard and a new powersupply but how do you know nothing else was damaged when those components failed. How do you know the processor and ram still works? I have had P4 processors fail along with blown motherboard & powersupply. If you do get a replacement motherboard & PSU you will also need to ensure your ram is compatible or you will have to replace that as well.

What you do is up to you. Only you can tell whether buying second hand parts to ressurect your system would be better value than getting a complete new system

Since you refer to a power supply as SMPS, I'm guessing that you're from India? We call them PSU (Power Supply Unit). And based on the many questions we get from people from India regarding PSUs, there must be a lot of crappy "SMPS" being sold in your country.

How was it determined your motherboard & PSU are bad? You haven't told us anything about any problems you are (or were) having, so how did you narrow it down to these 2 components?
