It depends on the type of license for Windows XP you have, if its a retail you can transfer the license to a new computer if its a OEM included when you buy the computer you can't because it's against the Microsoft licensing terms.
Normally the best option is to by a Windows 7 OEM license with the new computer, legally you can buy a OEM license only with a new computer.

Update to Win7 and you will be fine. Also if you get win7 now you will be eligible for the Win8 upgrade for 39.99 in OCT when it is released.

Also, you mention "upgrade to Win7 for $100.00".
rshaffer61 correctly tells you to "update" not "upgrade" to win7.
This is because a Win7 "upgrade" CD cannot "upgrade" over any version of Win XP.
You will need the "Full" version CD of win7 for your install.
