Default Building/Re-Constructing Computer Help

I recently got an HP Pavilion Media Center m8147c TV PC Desktop handed down to me.

Here is the link of the current specs of everything:

HP Pavilion Media Center m8147c Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion Media Center TV m8147c Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

I am wanting to take parts from this, or just buy a few new parts for it, so I can
use it to my liking.

I'm wanting this computer for:

Gaming on high settings on games like Starcraft
School work
Video editing
Daily use

Any help is appreciated, I just want to take some parts from this if I can, and
add on a few new parts, with a new tower. Thanks so much.

Reuse: Hard drive, dvd drives, card reader, tv tuner, wireless card, win modem

Optional: Motherboard, CPU, Ram
The cpu on this system is quite out-dated so I don't know if you plan on reusing it or not. If your not gonna reuse it, than you'll probably need new cpu/mobo/ram also.

New(need to buy): Power supply, graphics card, case.
