I wouldn't re-use anything from a 7-8 year old computer. There are several paths you may choose when building one. If you don't need something very powerful and want to play games at medium to high settings, some of AMD's APU are pretty good. The cpu may not be as fast as an intel cpu, but the built in gpu is much better than any intel integrated. It can even rival some of the more budget video cards, which would play games at medium to high settings. Something like this is what I'm referring too. This cpu is also the top model in it's class. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113280
