If you're replacing the CPU, GPU and RAM - you're pretty much building a new computer. 

No parts from that build are going to be useful for a modern day gaming computer. You should just build a new one.

I know but the case, powerbrick can come in handy?

The case will only fit MicroATX motherboards most likely, and the PSU is also most likely way under powered for modern day parts. Plus it's most likely lacking proper pin layouts for power. the Case only has 2 HDD bays...

You can get a case for like $40 that would suffice.

What is your budget btw? If you want to upgrade it would be good to plan out what you spend your money on

If you are willing to spend around 700$ I have something that would be good use for gaming http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QzQVP6 you can remove the SSD but I would highly recommend keeping it, and if you want I would add in a different CPU Cooler, just for better performance and if you want to overclock your CPU, @Nackers would you approve of this? Anything you might change?

I left out the OS didn't know what you would want to use, I would prefer Windows 7 home premium.

Honestly I would stick with the EVGA GeForce GTX 750ti you get the same features such as shadow play but it is all up to you the way you spend your money, it is a good GPU and should last you a good amount of time

I do not have GTA Installed, I also do not have this same computer, but my guess would be you might be able to run 45-50 frames on GTA, as I have heard is that GTA runs off your graphics card memory(do not quote me) but with that 2gb with the 750ti and that good CPU and ram you will probably get some good frames

those cards can run almost any games, but if you play arma it's mostly CPU, (correct me if I'm wrong) it's up to you if you want to go an extra 225$ on a graphics card

I'll give the same advice I gave you weeks ago, despite the numerous posts you have created on the same topic that have mercilessly beaten this horse, it has not changed.

 

You're going to give yourself a LOT more trouble down the road if you keep attempting to build a computer at an absolute bare bottom budget. 

 

The advice was and still is, save what money you have now until you have the funds to properly build a computer.

 

Also, change your name.

If I go with a low end i5, will it work. And 750 ti is it worth it?
