Default What OS to use?

Here is what I have:

AMD Phenom QuadCore 9500 AM2+ 2.2ghz 4mb cache
AMD Phenom Original stock fan and heatsink
Kingbox DDR2 PC2-6400 2GB1/800MHZ (Micron D9)
ECS Black Series A780GM-A (780G AM2+ 4DDR-1066 PCI-E 2.0)
Western Digital 160GB 7200rpm 8mb sata II
ATI Radeon HD 3450 512MB DVI VGA TV-OUT
ATI Raedon HD 3200 Graphics (Blue ray/HD DVD/FUll HD)
Onboard network card
Raidmax ATX 450W Dual Fan Power Supply

Here is what I know about computers:
Nothing

Here is the current OS I am using:
Microsoft Windows Xp
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Here are my current issues:
Video in all players runs at double time (includes video on youtube, video run in winamp on my computer, anything and all videos run too fast.)
Speakers/or headphones/or any sound doesn't work. No sound at all.

What OS do you guys recommend for my computer? Or other suggestions?

You've helped me before with my internet connection, so I figured I'd give the forum yet another try

O.k. thanks for your suggestions, because I think a lot of my problems have to do with the OS I am using. I might be wrong though.

I think you could download drivers that would fix some of those issues.

Especially with the sound problems you have.

Yeah well here is what I did...I downloaded one of those programs that finds your out of date drivers. (its called driver genius, remember I know nothing about computers but i am learning) Anyways it did indeed find outdated drivers, but when I agreed and installed them, then my winamp and such wouldn't work AT All! It just said error. So I reloaded my old drivers until I know what to do.

Click on the link below....

LINK.

Here it will list all the drivers for your motherboard.

And I see a sound driver, released not that long ago, for your motherboard.

In fact you might want to download the whole lot. As long as the motherboard that is shown is yours.
