Well, then stick with your plan. You seem to know a bit about bikes and what it takes to put them together.
If you decide to go with 9 speed. You will need a new rear hub, new cassette, new chain. New front derailleu, new cranks (well, new chainrings anyway), and not to mention new shifters. Your old derailleur may work, but with what you're going to spend might as well buy a new one of those too!
How's your fork?
