Now, the PC boots up and all and the GPU spins up. But the PC doesn't recognize the monitor (Or any of the four monitors I plugged into it which I know work)
I still have more troubleshooting to do, but I am preparing for the possibility that my 5 year old computer has met its end.
But that's besides the point. The point is, I have a 300$ parts list here. I might be able to go 350$, and maybe, just maybe, 400$.
I already have the GPU (Assuming that it's not the culprit) and a 1 TB HDD.

This is a super cheap CPU. It's great for gaming, but I don't just do gaming. I also 3D model. Well, it'll do better than the A8-5500 I had.
Only 8gb of RAM. I wish I can squeeze in 16, but that won't happen.
I want a case that looks decent, is actually built decent, and has a side window. This is a great option, I think.
This is much better than the 300 watt PSU I had in my system, and allows future expansion if I so choose.
Edit: I prefer the PSU to be as efficient as possible. I want a gold rated PSU.
I'd really like your guys' help on this. I really want the best bang for my buck while making it look somewhat decent.
Thanks and cheers!
