There's not really anything you can salvage from that. You have a socket 478 motherboard, DDR RAM and most likely integrated graphics.

You're going to have to build from scratch. So, what's your budget? Which country are you in?

The only part you could use is the Case and maybe the hardrive.

Well if you bought that,mounted it in your existing case,you could also possible use your existing PSU Aswell,the only thing you would need would be some RAM.

What about this instead? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138111? I can give you links to other parts if you need help finding any.
