Not sure I have a good answer here for you.
 
There are two different directions one can take here:
 
* The first is to strip the case down and do a reverse hackintosh. This is were you put in an off the shelf logic board and rebuild the system that way. People then add in the Apple Firewarefirmware (EFI) to make it run Mac OS-X.

* The second way is to locate a newer generation of the Mac Pro logic board and the other needed parts, again gutting your case and mount it in.
 
Both of these are expensive and do require skills. Are you sure you want to do this? An older Mac Pro is still a nice box! And you can use 10.7 (Lion) and older 32bit apps.
 
You may want to look at buying a used 3.2 GHz Quad Core (2012/Nehalem). That maybe a cheaper direction if you are looking for a system to run the newer 64bit apps.
