Transfering everything from one computer to another.

Very soon I will need to replace my Gateway e 2000 Series,Celeron 2.00 ghz processor, 60 Gig hard drive 512ram computer with Windows XP home. It has been a great machine with very little problems considering my lack of care. ( I have never cleaned the inside of the box) I bought it used 4 years ago for $200 complete with DVD and CD burner, monitor, keyboard, etc. Lately, for some reason, if I shut down the computer, it doesn't like to turn on. When I hit the power button it sounds like it starts to boot than just shuts off. It'll do this a couple of times up to numerous times. Lately I just hit the sleep button for fear that the day will come that it won't turn back on at all.
My concern is, when I get a new computer, how can I transfer everything on this machine to a new one. I am talking about everything right down to what is on my Favorites lists from IE7 to My Docs, Desktop, the whole 9 yards.
I am generally a technical idiot and have nothing backed up. I do a lot of online business and all my Internet Business is on this machine. If I lost it, I'm screwed!! Help!
