Can upgraded a 2007 dell PC into modern gaming PC or reuse any of the parts?

I have a 2007-2008 slimline and I am wondering if any of the parts can be used to build a new gaming PC or is to old and outdated

    The only thing that *might* be re-useable would be the hard drive (if it is a SATA drive), but since it's nearly a decade old, I wouldn't feel too comfortable putting my information on a drive that could start failing at any moment.

    I would just re-use that system as a guest PC, like PoohBearPenguin suggests. You can put a Linux distro and get some more useful life out of it.

    No, nothing can be reused from that computer. It's too old, and too proprietary.

    Just turn it into a browsing station for your guests.
