The motherboard is an Intel DG31PR, not bad as it supports Xeon without custom BIOS, though it's limited to 4GB. These are the furtherest you can go on this board:
  • CPU: Any LGA775 Core 2 Quad or LGA 771 quad core Xeon (e.g. 5400-series), for the Xeon get the C0 stepping for better compatibility, oyu'll need to mod the socket a little bit to use LGA 771 processors

  • RAM: 4GB RAM is the max, use 2 x 2 GB DDR2-800 to achieve this

  • Graphics card: Depends on your power supply and budget, if you have a decent PSU and want a cheap but decent card, I'd suggest the GTX 750 Ti, low power and great for budget gaming especially for an old system
Don't expect miracle on it though, you aren't not gonna play modern AAA games in 1080p on this, but maybe doable in 720p. 4GB RAM is a bigger problem IMO.

If you're building an XP retro gaming machine though...

pcpartpicker.com is a great place to compare what is compatible. Just find what you have currently and add on to the list for your build
