    Punctuation was invented for a reason. The only thing you really can do is start with a vcard (assuming you have agp) then save up for (1)mobo, (2)ram & (3)cpu. This is assuming that your mobo has agp. But the three formentioned items are all vital, non-transferable, and unfortunately for you, expensive so there is no easy way to do what you are wanting.

    Why upgrade that PC when most of it is so old?

    Your case will likely not have the airflow needed for a modern setup plus the PSU will also likely below par as well.
    Personally I'd be planning a complete new system (except maybe use the 120GB WD).

    Well then if you don't want anymore systems then why not just sell that one so that you'll have more to spend on a much more modern one? It would be the best way to go.
