Most of the new videocards have a faster processor than your CPU if you're using a 1ghz....it doesn't get much more imbalanced than that.

You can get the same video card, processor, MoBo, and memory thats in my sig for about $700. Just port your hard drives over and be done with it.

Yea start with getting a new cpu/mem/mobo. Keep youre ti4200, then when you have morem oney buy a new video card. Getting a new video card with what you will more then bottleneck the thing, like said above they have video cards where the memory is faster then the cpu in ur system.

You should upgrade, but not at the present moment. If your looking toward AMD/Athlon 64, know that there alternatives on the horizon that will better suit someone such as yourself. In other words, if you don't upgrade often, it is imperative that you purchase the most upgradable system possible. If Intel is your fancy then you can upgrade now, unless you're looking into EMT64 (Intel's version of x86-64). Otherwise, just sit tight and save up the bulk of your funds for just a couple more months. Given the fact that you'd had your current system for so long, I don't think you'll mind too much.
