So I have a very little budget and was I barely able to scrape up this system its a Ryzen 3 2200g(overclocked to 3.85) 220 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, Asus prime a320m-k, 450KW PSU, Gigabyte GTX 1050 TI 4gb(not overclocked but would like to), The case is very generic its even causing static i dont know how. I already asked some guys at the store i got the case from and they said because it was such a cheap case that it can cause static.

Problem 1: I just got the 1050 ti and it can run 1080 mid-high settings on most games.. But my monitor is pretty bad. It has a max res of 1366x768 @ 60hrz. If i try and change it the screen either becomes to small or too big. So i have to get a new one. But i have a budget of around 90$ for it and a 35-40$ for a case i need some suggestions

Problem 2: I am using the stock cooler for my CPU. I would like to get a better cooler but again low budget. So any suggestions on a good cooler for around 20$?

Oh and instructions on how to overclock my GPU would Soooo freaking great! Thank you to who ever reply's to this!

Case*:
Not many choices at that price point but the following does have CPU cooler clearance of at least 150mm,

* PC case is a personal choice and pick any you like.

CPU cooler:
Only these are below $20 and they may not be any better than your current CPU cooler,

CPU cooler that would be better is Arctic Freezer 33 (mid-sized CPU cooler at 150mm tall),

You might be able to re-size the monitor display, especially if you are connecting to it through HDMI. If you have an option to use HDMI but are not using it, then get an HDMI cable for $7 and switch. Here are the instructions. I did this and finally got the TV screen adjusted right that I've been using these past 5 1/2 years.

You gotta get that case grounded, like yesterday.

You didn't say what your monitor connection is but you may find that HDMI increases your performance with it even setting aside the fact that you should be able to make it fit. It is to be remarked that wrong screen size sometimes indicates a bad or wrong driver installation. Put that monitor on HDMI. Displayport is worth a shot but I don't think AMD gives you an option to adjust size through Displayport. I might be wrong.

If your budget is low do the other stuff first and keep using stock cooler.

I would suggest that you spend less time with "the guys at the store" and more time buying at Newegg and reading the reviews of the gear. Sometimes you can learn stuff. And here, too, you can learn stuff. But you sometimes learn stuff from the Newegg reviews. ( And sometimes you don't learn anything, other than that someone bought something and got ticked). Sometimes I pop down to Best Buy when I need a specific thing that they happen to have at a competitive price and I don't want to wait for it to be shipped. So I bought an HDD there a few weeks ago.

I am using a HDMI cord. And about the wrong driver installed how do I fix that if that's the case? Also how would you suggest I ground my case I actually have it on my desk?

This is really helpful Aeacus. Thank you

I got a question: how did you OC your CPU to run at 3.85 Ghz while A320 chipsets doesn't support CPU OC?
If you want to OC your CPU, minimum you'd need is B350 chipset MoBo since those and up support CPU OC.

Oh, your PSU specs are also off since if you'd really have 450KW PSU, it would output 450.000W, which isn't possible (1kW = 1000W).

It autocorrected so it wrote kw instead. Sorry about that. As for the CPU OC, I don't know I had someone do it for me since I have no experience in Overclocking.
