I think this would have been better served in the OCing forum

To answer your question, you should be able to overclock your video card quite a bit more without any trouble. I don't have much experience with GeforceFX cards, but I used to overclock my GF4 ti4200 by about 50MHz core/100Mhz memory without experiencing any stability issues. If you look around on the net for reviews of your particular card, you should be able to get an idea of how overclockable it is.

As far as your PSU, 300w is a little low, but Celerons are fairly low power and you don't have too many devices, so I wouldn't be all that concerned about it.

you say your cpu temps are 28/29/30c? are you positive about this, that sounds like mobo temps, where are you reading these temperatures from... unless your ambient temperature is like 20c i find this hard to believe with air cooling
