You will need a socket 775 motherboard. At retail, they are expensive. Look on e-bay if you must be really cheap.
The DDR2 ram which it needs costs more than modern ddr3 ram.
You will also need a graphics card.

I think I would build based on a newer gen cpu,motherboard, and ram, depending on what parts you already have.
The D 930 has a passmark rating of 678, the cheapest socket 1155 chip, the $50 G530 is 2242

Treat her and just buy an AMD APU + motherboard + ram, plenty of deals going for combo purchase and will stomp of the Pentium-D and the ATI1650. Some places even offer prebuilt at silly prices.
