You WILL get rock-solid performance going back to Windows XP -- it just has to be the 64bit edition.
I've been using XP Pro x64 SP2 for years after running out of RAM while playing Supreme Commander, but never since. I regularly chew up 4 to 6 Gig of RAM on projects in Reaper 64bit without any glitches, but to get even MORE performance out of your machine, you could move the OS, programs, DLL's and your swap file to a SSD. You will be amazed at the difference in response time.
Also, if your using a lot of sample-based VSTi's (but as long as you are NOT using the E-MU Emulator-X3 sampler) you could migrate your samples to a standard HDD RAID-0 array, too. It's easy and cheap to do. Just don't keep your projects on a RAID-0 array unless you do backups daily, because recovering files from a broken array will either be painful and time-consuming, or expensive -- depending on your experience level.
