Default Nitrogen tank/regulator for CO2 use

Hi,
Getting started on my kegging project and trying to piece together equipment. A nitrogen tank and nitrogen regulator is no longer in use and available at where I work. Is it possible to use these pieces of equipment for a CO2 setup? Or because I have these two free pieces, is it best to do a beergas setup?
If I can convert, what pieces of new equipment do I need?
Thanks for the help

Yes, you can you would need either a CGA-320 off the regulator and a swap the tank for a CO2 tank. But you could sell/trade for what you need a Nitrogen regulator and tank in my opinion are worth more then changing it to a CO2 set-up.

So it looks like I need a CGA-580 on the regulator and the CGA-320 going to the (swapped) CO2 tank.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
