Upgrading would be a good idea. It depends on the games you play too, though. If you can play them with your computer now, then I don't see why you need to build one. But if you want to play a relatively recent game, you have to get a new computer.

i would say build a new one, that one looks like its gettin pretty old

tell ur dad that if you build a nice computer now, it will last for years to come. if u get lower quality machines, ur gonna have to upgrade more often.

if u want us to reccommend some parts for building one, we'll need a price range. so im assuming you're going to have to talk to ur dad about that first.

well the only difference is the 2.0GHz vs. 2.2GHz, which you could easily overclock if u wanted to. but if you wanna spend (i think $30? extra), then it is a little bit of a better processor
