My System Specs

Default Old server -> HTPC w/ XMBC front

Hey guys,

Im planning to redo my server (see sig) and the old one will be assigned to be a HTPC w/a XBMC front.

CPU + Mobo, 2GB of RAM will be used and a small HD running Win 7 + XBMC. Is my MOBO good enough to play 1080p content? Or do i need to add a GPU?

What GPU you guys recommend? No gaming on this HTPC. Strictly 1080p playback and general web browsing.
