Ok so after doing some reading I realized my original idea wasn't very good as I think the fastest up grade with the factory motherboard is 2.8 ghz, so I'm wondering if it would be possible to keep my components and just replace the Motherboard, CPU and memory cards to DDR3 up from the DDR2. Is this doable?

If you change out the motherboard, your creating a new computer. That voids the original OEM licensed Windows OS. Then your faced with manufacturing a backplate, adapting the power switch leads, and the possibility the motherboard standoffs do not line-up. It would be better to purchase another computer vs Frankenstein.
