A few things to keep in mind are upgrade/Current Technology/Life Span of the computer .Sense you have a case and working hardware your best option would be to upgrade the current system.You could do a nice upgrade on that system for $500.00.
This recomendation is somthing with current technology and slightly over budget but how long do you want it to last ?
