  1. I think you already have the best OS for your system which will give you extra headroom for future ram upgrades aswell.
  2. Arguably you can say Windows XP 32-bit will give you better performance because the operation system itself uses less resources. Since you have an older socket LGA 775 CPU & motherboard there should be Windows XP drivers available for the motherboard.

    The main drawback of Windows XP (at least for gamers) is that it does not support DirectX 10 or 11. Therefore, if the games includes DX10 or 11 effects then those effects will be disabled.

    Windows XP 64-bit is not recommend because of the lack of many drivers.
  3. Stick with what you've got.

    Keep the W7x64bit and add more RAM, total 8GB will make u smile.
  5. Windows 7 is better all the way around you will not get better performance from Windows XP even with your older rig. The only thing I would suggest is to add more ram to your rig and you should be good to go.
