Old school refreshed

This was my first build from ground up, built around that 2008 era. This was going to be a machine that could actually play Crysis. Had it sitting in garage for years, cleaned it up, applied new thermal paste, added a couple fans with some lights. Antec 900 case is epic, came with 2 120 fans with blue lights, and a 200 fan on top with speed control, The Sigma Shark power supply looked amazing with blue lights in fans too. I messed up and wiped drives before I decided that I would get this beast back in action. I would like some suggestions on an OS that will allow this to be usable, I might try a linux OS or Steam OS if it will run it, otherwise I may have to try dig up Windows XP. Also still waiting on approval for parts list being most of them are old, will update
