Default upgrading to an Athlon64

I have an Athlon XP that runs at 1.33 GHz. I would like to upgrade to an Athlon64 but I don't know how many of my other components would work with an Athon64 motherboard. I know that I have DDR-266 memory and two IDE harddrives. Is there a site or program that I can use the output from and post on here and someone tell me if it would work or not? I bought the PC from HP in Q3 '01. I just want to know if it would be wiser to save money for a totally new computer or just upgrade the motherboard. I have configured desktops that I'd like for a little less than $2000 on the internet, so if I could upgrade for around $1000 I'd be happy. Thanks in advance for the help.

Build a whole now computer. HPs now are piles of crap, but they were even worse back in '01. Using your parts from your HP would just slow your computer down.
