Is there a major performance difference between an athlon xp 2800+ and a 3200+? If so, please list the things that are better. Thanks.

Well, you will have a faster Processor, but the diference isn't quite noticeable. An Athlon 64 2800+ will thrash either an Athlon XP 2800+ or an Athlon XP 3200+, so if you plan in an upgrade, I suggest you going for that one.

will I have to get a whole new motherboard if I do want to upgrade to a 64? If so, what else do I need to replace?

You will need a new Motherboard. However, Socket 754 and Socket 939 Processors can run with normal 400 MHz Bus DIMM DDR Memory Modules (You can use lower Frecuency Memory Modules, but they will hit the performance).
