Low Budget PC for the nieces and fam

Hey all! Was wanting to see what parts to get in the future for my nieces new computer. They primarily play Minecraft and are pure beginners so light modding here and there adding occasional monsters or whatever. My sister will also use it to for Facebook, E-mail, and other regular internet things.

Now the budget is unknown at this time. I'm open for anything around ~$300

I saved these parts from upgrading my current build! So have it fit these parts to save a bit of money!

Hoping to see some suggestions and opinions!

Remember they will pretty much do internet surfing and something like minecraft.

Please include OS as well.

I think I saw that my very old pc I got from a best buy has that cpu but not sure. It's quite dusty XD If it is then this will be a real easy build!
