I need some help some help here to decide what component to buy for my htpc. Its going to be use on my 42" panny plasma. Since the plasma doesn't have DVI input, I'm stuck with component connectivity.

Now I'm thinking what kind of CPU and VGA card I need. I don't need PVR function, as I mainly use it to play video files. What kind of processing power do I need for 1080i (or maybe 1080p video for future proof) video? My currect desktop use 6600GT, and it works very well with my plasam, but do I need this kind of horse power at all? Also, does CPU matters for HTPC use?

Also, do I need wireless keyboard and mouse still, or will MCE2005's remote control does all the control?
