Very cool build, I have fond memories of these from when I was pretty young in school. How are your temps? I noticed you don't seen to have any case fans and your PSU vents are blocked by the case. Also I would recommend a DVI to VGA adapter vs an HDMI to VGA to solve your resolution issues.
Wow! I love that SE case mod! I just did a hack into a 2u case. Full disclosure PDF on that here for a d/l:
...As I understand it, the motherboard doesn’t support analog video. So I need an active adapter. Do you think there is a better chance of success with an active DVI to VGA adapter? I thought the price was the difference...
Oh, interesting It might just be your motherboard but it's worth a shot with an inexpensive DVI adapter. I'm surprised you don't have one laying around, I thought every computer geek had at least one in their junk pile
EDIT: According to Gigabyte the DVI port is a DVI-I port, which supports either digital or analogue monitors. I think that HDMI is only backwards compatible with DVI-D which only supports digital displays.
And today I have confirmed this. The screen works when booting up but the image get stuck on the gray screen with the Apple logo. So the motherboard supports analog video but the Mountain Lion does not? Hmm, I'll have to look into this a bit more...
