Can a graphics card kill a motherboard??

I installed a zotac gtx 1050 ti oc on my 8 year old Asus p5g41tmlx3 motherboard. And a week later motherboard died. None of the rear  ports are working. CPU and GPU fans are spinning but nothing on screen. Complete black.  Is it because of my graphics card or something else.

Asking because I'm getting a new system and want to make sure my graphics card is perfect and it won't kill my new system.

If CPU fan is spinning then your motherboard is probably working.

But no bios splash screen and no power to mouse and keyboard. I even tried charging my phone from mobo's rear USB. But no power.

Try running your monitor off the iGPU if you have it.

What power supply? 

If it's quite a bad quality one, the extra power draw from the Gpu could have blown something in the psu, and taken the motherboard with it.

Yeah it's a  generic Chinese 450 w PSU, which I have been using for last 8 years. But PSU fan is also spinning.

That would do it. NEVER cheap out on the PSU. If you are going to cheap out on something, don't cheap out on the PSU.

And on the first day god said: "Cue one GO" And there was light!

450w add dust over 8 years and than start pulling 350w on graphics card alone... could have something to do with it.  Nice 650w supply would be safe, assuming it did take anything with it on it's last ride to Valhalla.
