I'm not sure what your goal is in overclocking the cpu. You don't game. You don't bench, if you know what I mean. The 2 uses aren't demanding at all.

Do you need Windows?

Hit 2GB RAMs 1st (one stick) and a 250-320GB SATA HDD and you'd be within budget with OS

Yep OS is to be included but the recent DX10 IGPs like HD 3200, GF 8200 , etc are capable for HD movies actually

The 785G's HD 4200 is a refinement of 780G/ HD 3200
