Fixed Computer Starts but not signal to monitor

Starting stats
Gigabyte motherboard(sorry dont know what it was exsactly built another computer with it and gave it away)
i5-3570 LGA1155 cpu
8GB RAM
1TB HD - Running windows xp
Gigabyte GT 630 2GB Graphics card
600 PSU

So my computer keeped slowing down and I knew something was wrong with the hardware but did not have the money so I just keep
using it after a while it becasue so slow I start fiddling with it. Thats when the computer would start but I would get no signal to the monitor. So I went to the computer store to see if they had an idea, after getting blank looks from the guys behind the counter a customer sugested it might be the PSU.

I brought a PSU and tried to use it but got the same effect. I have enough part lying around that I was able to check all the other components in the computer and worked it down to the CPU or motherboard. I sent the computer to a computer store to see if they could come up with a different conclusion, 6 days later they told me what I already knew the good news was they didnt change me anything.

I replaced the gigabyte with a asus Motherboard, still nothing changed. I replaced the i5 with an i3 and the computer started up but was still running bad. So I back up my files and wiped the hard drive completely than reinstalled xp. It is running faster now than I ever remember it running. (How ever it can not run to its full potential as it is running xp and the soft ward can not see all the hardware)

I use the left over parts to build this
Gigabyte motherboard
i3 -3240
2GB RAM
250GB HD - Running ubuntu 64 bit
600PSU

Ending stats
Asus motherboard B75M-PLUS
i3-3240
8GB RAM
1TB HD - Running windows xp
Gigabyte GT 630 2GB Graphics card
650 PSU
