Your PC may be dead but it may have some parts that can be useful. As it's only 3 years old. So any idea what parts are still working? Memory, hard disk, CPU, optical drive, case, power supply...?

Ok, so new computer exept hard drive. In case you already have valid Windows 7 licence, remove that Windows 7 Pro. I Don't know exactly what laws in your country say about EULA so cannot be sure if you have legal Windows 7 license already. Other forum members perhaps know better.
Parts I selected fits almost any micro ATX or ATX case, so there are almost unlimited amount of choices. Cheapest from PC Partpicker http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-case-vl80001w2z
Looks like I missed budget over 250 dollars. In case you want to spend all 800 dollars, no problem. That setup should be good enough however.

Er, I believe you may have slightly misread my post. The reason my old PC is not functional is because the hard drive died. Thank you for the suggestion though.
Still stays on budget, just add http://pcpartpicker.com/part/seagate-internal-hard-drive-st2000dm001
