Watching hd films on tv via pc

  Brummy71 22:19 29 Mar 2008

I am about to purchase the Arbico CD8400 XL which topped the charts in sub£500 category.

What i want to do is watch HD films from my Hard drive on my HD Ready tv. will this machine cope with it, or should i upgrade the graphics card (Geforce 8600 GT)
also i am not sure about Vista i may have it installed with XP instead, is this wise?

is there anything else i would need?
