Alessandro, I imagine your current CPU will be fine if you can stuff a
VDPAU-capable card like the GT430 inside the case.  Your CPU has more oomph
than my Intel Atom + Nvidia ION and I can drive a 1080p display.  4GB RAM
is plenty as well.

I'm not sure what your boot media currently is, but a small cheap SSD would
go a long way to keeping things quiet and speedy.
