XBMC under Linux with a supported Nvidia based video card will handle HD playback easily due to it's implementation of hardware acceleration.

Under windows, any low end ATI or Nvidia card (GT220?) will do.

As a general purpose pc, your spare parts would do very well under Linux btw (2gb ram would be nice).
