See bottom post for latest issue in this unnecessary saga!

I am a YouTuber and streamer uploading Nintendo Switch gameplay. My old PC completely crashed and I need to build a new one quick.

I already have the Elgato HD60+ used for streaming, but I'm at a complete loss as to what to do now to keep the build as cheap as possible while also running software such as OBS and Davinci Resolve without lag and constant crashes.

I have a budget of right around $900 and I will have to purchase everything from Amazon so that it can be placed on my store card for financing.

Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

Huge problem!!! I have everything set up and ready to go, but my monitor is receiving no signal from the onboard display driver or the GPU. In fact, the GPU isn't even spinning.

When I turn it on, all of the fans power up, and the motherboard is not beeping or anything like that, so I have no idea what is going on.

I've reseated the RAM and GPU. I even used a different cable from the GPU to the PSU. It's still as if there is no power making it to the GPU. I'm going to try and use a different PSU, to see perhaps that is the problem.

The only lights I see on the motherboard are the ones that turn on as soon as the PSU is switched on around the IO Panel.

I tried new PSU and it wouldn't even power on the case, so I went back to the original PSU for this build. I don't know what I did differently, but the stupid machine finally decided to display the bios. Now let's see if I can get this headache setup.

So, now I've encountered a new problem. The second HDD that I installed is not appearing under This PC, but shows up under Device Manager as Unknown Device? How would I remedy this?

Whenever I try to initialize it under Disk Management, I always get an error stating that the system cannot find the file specified.

And now I am getting "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key".


I give up.

Okay. I got all of that sorted. The PC recognizes both drives now. It boots up the way it is supposed to. No issues whatsoever until it entered sleep mode. Not only will it not wake up from sleep mode by pressing enter on the keyboard or what have you, it won't wake up after physically turning the machine off and back on again.

The LED indicator is white. According to the manual, white means VGA. Could this be caused by the Elgato HD60 Pro? What do I need to do now? This has turned into a 3 day job. I'd really appreciate some help.
