Dell Studio XPS 540

Good morning PCPPers. I have a Dell Studio XPS 540 that I am hoping to breathe some new life into. I have always liked the case and hence why I am trying to get some ideas for a complete rebuild. I know the case doesn't have the best airflow so maybe this is an entirely ridiculous idea, but my idea would be to have this as a secondary gaming rig. Please let me know what you think, or any idea(s) you may have. Thank you.

How much of the existing hardware do you plan on keeping? Or are you going to gut the whole thing and only reuse the case?

Yes, I plan on completely gutting the case. I don't feel there is anything in the case worth keeping at this point.
