For low power requirements, its hard to beat the HD4670 from ATI. It doesn't even require a 6 pin power connector, just runs off the motherboard. It will play most games fine, don't expect it to drive a 30 inch monitor at highest settings though.

I would not recommend anything lower than 2.4ghz for modern games, even a quad core. 64 bit Vista is better supported than x64 at this point. Games will be fine, it is older peripherals (printer, scanners, webcams, etc.) that may not work with 64bit.
