You can still accomplish a lot with 12.2 depending on what you are looking for :) If you need 15.x and newer you will need to buy something new. You can also consider trying out packet tracer and/or GNS3 ;)

With that old of a router I would recommend that you download and install the latest code supported on your platform. Keep in mind the RAM and FLASH requirements selecting the version and code.
