Ok so I just built my first system, and I tried playing minecraft for my first game and I only got 60-100 fps on max when I feel like I should be getting a lot more. I'm playing at 1400 res. and I'm running 32 bit xp right now because my win 7 64 bit is coming in tomorrow. The 64 bit should help increase fps right? and cpu temps jump from 40c average to 50 average a couple of minutes into minecraft. Is that ok? Im gonna upgrade my case soon but I can't decide what I should upgrade first: case or psu?

I agree with Mano. Get a new psu from Seasonic or corsair to replace that thing before it goes out and brings something down with it. Also like Manofchalk said, unless you have a 120 hz monitor you dont need anything above a solid 60+ fps. Also Minecraft is very CPU demand I find. Overclock it could help, but again I would get a new psu first before even thinking about that.
