Mac Pro 1,1 case ground up build
I have had some issues with my Mac Pro 1,1 . I took it to the local apple store and they said that its logic board and two risers for the ram need to replaced. To order the parts and have them replaced at the store is quite expensive. i know i can build my own system for less. What I am wondering is if it is possible to use the case and just build a whole new computer from scratch?

you can, provided you got the right internals and have also experience tinkering with computers/electronics.
But with current price of the Mac Pros, I almost suggest you to find another 1.1

It may be prudent to get parts and go for 3,1 instead.
in addition to the parts required, all you need is the plastic bit behind the fan - the memory rack. Or you can just run without it and hold it in place with blue tack. So long as you turn the fans up a bit the blue tack wont melt. I use blu tack in my computer to hold the SSD in place and it's fine.

As for the OP, I'd suggest selling it as not working with the dead parts mentioned for whatever is offered, then buy a new machine. It's really not made to be a shell for generic parts. You might have to modify things considerably to even attempt this.
