Default xp or 64

well...i'm stuck here. i was going to get the 939 3500 athlon 64 but i was thinking if a xp 2500 oc'ed to 3200 would be able to play games just as good as the 64...i was think that i could save some money. would the 2500 oc'ed to 3200 be able to play all of the latest games and up? also if i'm gonna do this that mean i would be able to the dfi boards (YES) are they any good for oc'ing? one last thing the 2500 has an fsb of 333 can that be oc'ed to 400 so i can get more performance

i have a 2500 oc'd to a 3200 no problems. i have a watercooler on it and it runs at about 31 degrees.

But getting the 64 3500 would be a better upgrade. Cause then you can run 64 bit app's, plus the 3500 is faster than the 3200. I think either one would definately max out your video card (unless you have the new ones)
