How would one go about muting the strings on a power chord like this on an acoustic
|e-
|b-
|g-6
|d-x
|a-4
|E
As far as muting the low e, b and high e?

Just don't play them? Work on your strumming and you'll figure out the right way to strum intervals instead of hitting every other note associated.

Be accurate.

Also, you can leave the tip of your index finger resting against the low e, and the rest of your index on the b and high e.

This. And that's not a power chord, it's an octave. Power chords contain a fifth, which that does not.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

when i play octaves I mute the E string with the tip of my index, whilst fretting the A string, and lightly bar it, but not pressing down on the others. finally, fret the g string with the ring finger.

As for the more accurate picking vs muting I say it depends on the song. I find a lot of greendays octaves are better with muting (gives a more punk vibe to it) as opposed to just strumming the 3 strings.
