This is my story. My father has a dell inspiron 580S
Specs:
intel Core i3
6GB RAM
640GB HDD
Integrated graphics

The problem is that the PC fall from my father hands to the floor (like 5 feet altitude) and it is all.
The fans are destroyed, the cards reader are destroyed, the DVD drive too. My father not use it from the fall and give it to me. I open it and take out all the parts. the mobo looks intact. I bought a new case, new DVD drive, new car reader, new CPU fan and new HDD (I dont know if the old HDD works). I dont know if is good idea to buy a new PSU, the actual psu looks good to me. I just want to rebuilt it all and cross my fingers and hope that the pc works. I making anything wrong? Any recommendation?

Thanks

if nothings rattling inside that PSU, I would say wouldn't hurt to give it a try, throw it all together and give it a shot.

I can buy later a better PSU (For gaming purposes) and use it with this MOBO? or is better to change the MOBO for a gaming MOBO first? The stock PSU looks good I power it (with no load) and the green light shows up so i think that it is ok.

Yes, you can buy a better PSU and use it with this motherboard, though you would be best served by following the_partiot11's advice and putting it all together first to find out if it will even power up. Once you've established that the mobo, PSU & memory all survived the fall and are in good working condition, then you can begin considering your upgrade options.

Thankyou I will wait to receive the new parts, check the computer and if it works then consider the upgrades. The computer have a graphic card installed when it fall. I take out the graphic card and installed it in my brother computer, it works fine. So, I hope that the other parts works too.

well I only going to use inspiron motherboard with CPU and memory. also the PSU all the other things are new. THe case will be a HAF, I bought a new cooling system for the processor. I know I have a lot of limitations with the actual motherboard and PSU. If the pc works I will upgrade it (I know I need to upgrade almost all things XD) to make the gaming rig. like $600. For now a useful computer makes it until I have the money. I think I found a way to check the inspiron parts with the actual home computers

I really want a game rig but now not have the money so if the PC works with what I have now, then later I can buy the gamer mobo. The best in the future is buying the mobo, graphic card and the PSU, I think the i3 processor still is good for a long time for games and the 6GB memory.

I checked the HDD and it works on my brother computer. Still, it was too slow, I cant do anything, only enter to windows and looking the desktop. I dont know if the problem was software or hardware. About data, yes is have all the data I think.

If you can get the hard drive to work on another system, I would recomend backing it all up and then reformatting, and seeing if that helps if you still have the windows disc.
