I don't understand...

So I have about a $75 Nishiki that I use for commuting and everything. I've been thinking that because I live on the thing that perhaps an upgrade of components or a newer (better?) bike is in order. When I look at new brake systems, deraillers and the sort the prices seem to be more than the cost of my bike! New bikes at Performance in Denver are slashed and some of them are between 2 and 3 hundred for a nice looking bike.

Will someone explain to me why the components cost more than an entire bike? Is this worth it? Should I even bother with a new bike, or will the difference be so noticable that I ought to do it?

SOmeone help me figure this out.
