HELP! Complete Novice - Chainring / Cassette advice

I've got a ten year old Specialized Allez which when cycling back from work last year the chain snapped. I bought a new chain which then wasnt compatible with the heavily worn cassette so replaced the cassette. Whilst this has helped I'm still getting an awful lot of skipping and its almost unrideable. 

The bike is coming towards the end of its life but would be nice to get it back on the road now the weathers picking up without breaking the bank. 

So if I bought and fitted a new set of front chainrings would that get it back on the road or am I fighting a losing battle do we think? Would that lead onto something else?

I'm a complete novice when it comes to this aort of thing so any advice would be great! Thanks!
