Concerned my PSU isnt enough

I've had this PC for a number of months now and have just started getting an issue on boot up that my monitor wont turn on, the PC is clearly on, fans spinning etc and also, say for example my phone usb is in a port, that wont indicate it's charging either. Is this an issue with my PSU? im aware of the problem of people thinking they need way more than they do and this isnt my first PC so this is the PSU followed by general specs, any other symptoms ive noticed are certain mini stuttering in certain games where screen will freeze for a second or too or maybe i just lose sound for a moment but that could be anything, also a coil whine has developed recently, again i know these are just annyoing rather than a problem but that's all ive noticed, id appreciate any input, even a simple your pc is fine, ive just never experienced this monitor screen issue before, thanks in advance!

Even if this turnouts out not to be the PSU this time I would still budget to replace it asap.

No, this isn't an issue with the PSU. This looks like an issue with the graphics card, hard drive, or Windows installation.
