i have an old computer Sempron 3100+/Nvidia GeForce FX5200, is it worth trying to mine btc on this old machine? I would be happy with 1 or 2 btc per week
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

I would say no, at the current difficulty the bitcoin calculator said that you would need 425MegaHash/second to get 2 bit coins a week, your card isn't on the list at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison so I don't think it's even compatible to mine with.
