based on the Top 5 Windows OS List: Top 5 Windows Version with Least Bugs
Is it true that Windows 2000 was target by hacker the most?
My old PC is running windows 2000 and i don't think the pc spec can handle windows 7 yet.

According to MS - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/products/system-requirements
These are the absolute minimum specs for running Win 7 :-
Windows 7 system requirements
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
With these specs it will crawl ! Realistically you need a 1.5 GHz processor and at least 2GB of RAM to get live with performance out of Win 7.
I don't know if you can get currently updated AV software for Win 2000, but here is link to Quietman's article on keeping your computer secure :-
As to your question about 2000 being the most attacked version of Windows I would not have thought so as it wasn't available for very long and it wasn't installed by many people. I think the title of 'Most attacked' would go to either XP or Win 7 as they were/are employed in huge numbers.

Have you considered running a Linux distro on your old pc? For most basic tasks such as browsing, video viewing and some light gaming it should be sufficient and secure.

Seconding contagious. Linux Lite sounds like it might work for perfectly you. Just until you can get your new computer up and ready.
