Read my post about the Auction House.

You stack Int + Vitality. (For now, ignore all other stats.) If you want a wand, you don't get a wand with +Strength, if you see an Axe with +30 Int, put that damn thing on. The reason you may want a wand or staff is for the additional range projectile. To hit someone with an axe you have to get close where as a wand would be able to projectile it and stay safe, but I don't think anyone uses "vanilla" attacks past level 3 or 4.

You also benefit from +min / max damage items.

You would also do well with life steal and mana regen.

My level 11 HC Barbarian has 3x your DPS (~60), and I have 500 DPS on my level 33 reg Barbarian.

Might be more enjoyable, maybe he sold gear he needed, etc. I have changed play styles at least 3 or 4 times on my main based on how much damage I could take vs. how much damage I could give, etc.

i would poke around on the auction house and see if you can find some cheap 28-30 items... once you go over lvl 30, items seem to increase in price by quite a bit.

If you can get yourself to the point where you can at least farm A1 nightmare, you'll find some pretty decent stuff.

i am act 2 nightmare and my dps is ~1230... i started nightmare mode with ~550 damage.

Now how in the hell did you pass Act IV? (Hehehe Diablo pun)

Wish Blizz had character profiles up already but you seem to have a handle on things now. You can find AH deals if you look, I'm constantly decking out my Monk in Rares for <700G. It's cheaper to sell your looted items and buy from the AH than craft it.
