How much will it cost me to upgrade a 2003/2004 Windows XP desktop to mid or high performance in diablo 3?
Windows XP Professional
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz
SiS 650_651_M650_M652_740 (SiS 651 Rev 00)
224 MB RAM
37.2 GB HDD
Instead buying a new PC, can i save any money by upgrading this one? If yes(or no), what parts should I upgrade? Any recommendation?

Well, I doubt you're Mobo could handle any fairly decent Processor, RAM either for that matter. I would certainly suggest a whole new computer, and a budget build is most definitely possible, considering D3 isn't the most demanding game.
I would suggest spend awhile looking through these forums
Specifically this thread
and if you do decide on specific parts, Newegg.com is you're best bet for parts. A planned budget would be a good thing to start with.
Your system is very outdated, and seeing you didn't mention your graphics card, it's not going to be very fun playing on it.
Recommending to build your own. Check this thread out:
