The VRAM isn't connected to the expansion slot. Chances are that if something destroyed the memory, it's a short between (pick any two) +5V, -5V, and +12V. The left side copper guide is right next to those pins.
And that being the case, if the memory is the only casualty, you should count yourself lucky.

Actually, perhaps you should check the voltages on those contacts. With one probe on the metal cage or some obvious ground, the 3 contacts starting on the bottom from the far left should be -5V, +5V, +12V. If they aren't, then it is likely that the power supply is actually what got fragged.
For that matter, first test the pins straight out of the power supply. They're labeled on the supply itself so you can match them up.
