what are the specs in it IE how much ram what cpu and power supply and video card with out knowing those things it is hard to tell you what you need. if it is a name brand like dell, HP, or something give us the full model number off of it and we can look up the specs

Sounds like a custom build. Does it have any OS installed? If not, you'll have to get a Windows disc, pop it in the DVD drive, and install.

Then it sounds like you need a motherboard, CPU, RAM, and possibly a few other components. Do you know what the form factor of the case is? If you don't, posting a picture could help.

First you need to get it started so you need to check if you have everything a PC should have. Try looking at diagrams of computers and checking if you have everything.

antec 900 is the case name we need to know what motherboard is in the case and the kind of cpu and ram it has. we don't wanna tell you to buy something and you already have it. ask him about those parts and we can go from there. if he don't know look on the main board for a model number or something. it will be printed on the board or maybe on a sticker but more than likely printed on it by the pci-e slots or under the cpu somewhere. if we atleast can know what kind of motherboard it will give us an idea of what the other componets are. if your not sure give us all the numbers that look like a model lol we can sort it out for you.
