The monitor would work with that computer, but I wouldn't buy it. You would still have to buy Windows and install it, and then figure out how to copy your data off of the old computer, if that is important to you.

If that power supply is the original, then it probably "just gave up".
You also mentioned that you were doing some upgrades.
The original power supplies are usually just enough. As you upgrade and add other components the the psu is under powered and working harder. When you combine that with old age, it couldn't handle it.

Why not see if a friend has one you could borrow and try?
