          That's a pretty ancient processor. Are you really sure you want to spend yet more money on a system that is that out of date? You will have all sorts of compatibility issues with many O/Ss (especially Windows 10). This processor's performance for both computing and graphics is abysmal compared to the latest generation processors. See this conversation: https://communities.intel.com/thread/86284?sr=inbox&ru=542602. In it, I detail how you can purchase processor and motherboard combination for less than US$200. Obviously, you will need to also purchase memory, hard drive, chassis, keyboard and mouse, but the costs for this are a wash between a system this old and a new system...
