Avoid windows xp 64; I tried it once and had too many virus attacks. Look for windows 7 64 on craigslist; I've seen it unopened as low as $50. You have a low end power supply. I would stop overclocking your video card; the difference in performance is too small to risk a component failing if you're poor and can't afford to replace it. You need a better power supply to overclock. I noticed a bigger performance with a modest overclock of the cpu (20 %). Your board may or may not permit it.
