I am not really very computer literate

My PC at home (a Compaq Presario) currently is partitioned into a 7.35 GB main drive and a 2 GB backup. Both are practically full. Our needs have changed in the last few months, as Fergal has discovered games and I have discovered, cough, archived videos. We've had it for just over five years.

Is there hope? Can I add much extra memory to it without having to resort to buying a new machine? If I do get a new computer, is it worth while considering getting one that I can just plug into the existing peripherals (printer, monitor/microphone, speakers)?

Your advice is welcome.

At the rate these things progress nowadays, a 5-year old PC is not old - it's ancient. And you are talking about 2 most power-hungry applications for the home computer - games and videos... There is nothing that requires more modern hardware than computer games (check out the minimum requirements of Civ IV for example:
http://www.2kgames.com/civ4/support_msr.htm
), and videos a just bulky. Plus, the PCs are getting less expensive by the year, so it would seem logical to buy a new one.
