Well, upgrading a laptop is a waste of money and limited. Only things worthwhile to upgrade on a laptop is storage and ram. Furthermore, upgrading old tech 'over the years' is a waste of money as well. I'd still recommend selling them both and saving your cash for something a bit more solid.

If your Acer laptop is worth $500 in resale value and your other laptop $200. At that point, you're working with around $950 if you combine it with what you have saved. Then, you could build a decent machine for what you want to do. That is what you will have for your webs I suppose.

No jobs where I live .-. and my parents are too cheap to not give me money to do stuff and I only get some on my b-day

Monoprice has good HDMI cables I hear. But I think that you'll be fine with whatever's on newegg for a couple dollars as well for shorter lengths.

I rather do like ATX better than micro ATX but looks like your on a tight budget so I'm not sure if that'd be possible.
Otherwise it looks fair. Note that Phenom IIs are actually superior in gaming in many cases but I like your processor choice better.

Why buy a full size ATX if I only am gonna run a miniATX board? the only rust on the case is on the bottom and that's cause that case sat in the rain for a day its just paint rust so im just gonna sand it and repaint it I got the side panels repainted already matte black and the inside is gonna be a neon green with blue LED strips
