So basically the only thing you are keeping is the case and maybe the RAM. Your better off building a new one.

nope. the only thing you can keep is the hard drive and case. everything else is going. might as well build your own

Google is your friend.
Here are the specs for your pc:

The pc is essentially obsolete.
Max ram is 2gb, not enough today.
The psu will not support more than a minimal gaming graphics card.
It is uneconomical to upgrade a lga775 based cpu.
It is time to rebuild.
You might be able to salvage the case and dvd burner.

What is your budget for your new build?
