Windows 7: Which certifications should I look at getting?

Which certifications should I look at getting?

What certifications should I look at getting and will they help me get a decent job above $10/hr? I would go back to school, but I just don't have the cash for a full time 4 year degree right now. So, will certifications at least get me in the door or what?

I'm looking at becoming a Systems Administrator. Are they still needed or what? And I'm thinking of getting the MCSA, Network + and Server + certifications.

Any others I should get or am I wasting my time and money with them?
