You need a newer OS. 10.5.8 should work. I believe it is about 30 euro to upgrade. Apparently this is not the case ( thanks to Niel for the correction). It is possible that your computer may indeed be too old.
From the box the new iphone comes in and Apples website:

Click here and here for information. If you don't have a copy of iTunes 9 available or it doesn't work, no; your computer's already running the newest OS it can.
roaminggnome: No G3 can run any version of Mac OS X 10.5.

If you follow Neil's link to install iTunes 9 on your system, you can try & see if you can get things working with your present computer. No guarantees it will work. If it doesn't, then yes you will have to purchase a new computer. The key here is getting itunes 9.2 on your system & working properly.MacBook Pro
