it appears I can salvage my case and HDD. Ram is ddr2 and pretty sure the PSU is a measly 500w so those wont do. I already have an operating system.
I'd like to spend about $850, which needs to include shipping costs. (there is wiggle room but it's only if the extra money means a big boost on performance.
edit: I should probably tell you what I'm going to use it for. I use my laptop for all my storage and music so I'll pretty much use this for my daily browsing and moderate gaming. Highest load I see myself putting on it is Guild Wars 2 which isn't supposed to be super demanding, but I'd like some wiggle room if it fits in the budget.
