Hello! I recently acquired an older computer from my grandparents because they believe the motherboard was fried somehow. It is a HP Pavilion a6700y desktop PC.

I Have no experience in the hardware portion of computers but have recently decided that I need a much better one than the laptop I currently have. I am selling a car soon and will be able to spend about 800$ on a new desktop and was curious if i could use anything from the HP from my grandparents and if anyone had suggestions on parts or places I can find good tutorials on how to actually build the thing. Like the title said, any and all help is welcomed and appreciated!
