If I'm not mistaken, you don't need much else than a decent graphics card and a sufficient power supply for it. The processor doesn't matter much, and your motherboard seems to have a pci-e x16 slot, which should be enough for any card (I think). What kind of PSU do you have? You may need to update that, too. You would probably need something like 400 watts at least, perhaps more, with two or so 6-pin power cables for the card. There are adapters to make molex cables fit into a pci-e card, but I haven't looked into those.I'm not sure if you can get a GPU and a power supply for 100 euros. I just bought a used Radeon 5850 (should give ~300 khash/s) for 80 euros, and a 500W PSU for 60 euros. They haven't arrived yet, so I'm not sure if I need something more still. This is the first time I'm upgrading a PC, so you should take my advice with a grain of salt.This site looks like a quite comprehensive listing of GPU hashrates. With some luck you might find a bargain for a good card and a used or refurbished PSU (if you need to update that at all).

Looks like a 430 W power supply. The wattage might be enough, but it doesn't necessarily have the necessary cables. Couldn't find the exact model (ATX2), but this one at least does not, apparently. You could open the case and look for yourself to make sure. Two of these seem to be a minimum requirement for most cards. If it has four of these available, they could be converted to two pci-e's with two adapters, though.For the other specs you posted, I'm really not sure. I'm kinda hoping myself that any processor and 4 GB of RAM is enough, for example, and it's just the GPU that matters (so that I don't need to make other investments for now, either).
I'm setting up a 24/7 miner too. I'm sure that PC you have will be fine. Just snag a decent gpu. They make adapters to go from 4 pin to 6. It takes 2, 4 pin plugs to make 1, 6 pin. So unplug everything but the motherboard and hard drive. No need for CD drives or any other nonsense. If you got 4 empty 4 pin plugs you got a mining rig.
