(1) Since your PSU is so weak I can only recommend this HD 7750

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ( fits your budget perfectly and only requires a 400w psu)


(2)There is nothing wrong with XP sp3 (I personally use it) but if you would like to change your OS, you would have to buy the disk and install it.

(3) Here's a few links that might help

P.S. Your current setup is very outdated, Most would recommend you upgrade it so do some saving.

first of all , get rid of the hcl monitor
hcl monitors are crap
by one from dell or samsung
next as your psu is limited i would suggest a hd 6670 or hd 7750
(whichever is available)
and if psu upgrade is available come back here with a budget
