Just toss the case man, you can buy a new one that is gonna be 60-70 bucks that will be FAR superior for cooling and quite frankly look much better. As far as what to build, b450 board, ryzen 2600, gtx1060, get a decent 450-500w power supply and 8 gb 3000 mhz ram kit and add a ssd drive and you're set
