Default Got about $100 to spare

I want to put my old PC back together, but I need a HD for it and I'd also like to put in a sata pci card so I can use the HD from my current PC in case of emergency. Problem is I could also buy a second sata for my current PC to use as a backup drive. Or I could buy a new keyboard and mouse for my current PC. I also wanted to buy an external floppy drive for use on a notebook in case of emergency.

Backup PC
80G HD
Usb FD
Sata PCI
Total: 101.99 w/o shipping


New PC
Spare 250G HD
Total: $103.50 w/o shipping


New PC
New mouse & keyboard
Total: $53.99 to $73.97 w/o shipping

Need advice on what to buy now.
