My System Specs

Default HTPC Build

I'd like to have an HTPC, split between the idea of a mediabox or an HTPC. If done, it'll be built from an extra PC I have sitting around. I need it to be able to play blu ray rips at 1080p on the bigscreen.

Current specs.
Pentium D 3ghz
2GB 533 ram (2x1GB)
250GB Seagate drive (would obviously add a 1.5tb or two)
7600GT (insufficient probably, looking at a cheap ati card with hdmi - Asus 4670 - 52$?)
Some intel mobo with 1 pci-e slot and 2 PCI slots
300W Sparkle PSU

I would need to buy the USB remote for this as well as a video card, basically trying to weigh my options and see what's best. Would upgrading the video card on this PC suffice for a 1080p HTPC?
