You are replacing everything, so why not just whack it into a new $50 case? You forgot a new HDD, the old netvista probably has a 20GB slow drive, you would want SATA RAID striping or something to improve overall system performance...

For this money you should buy a new PC and not upgrade an old one...

Actually I don't think any modern mother motherboard will fit on the NetVista case. Then there's the problem with power source unit - it may be an old one and not enough.

Nope, get a new case and fit all new components, I don't see the NetVista as part of an upgrade.
