Those are the glorious specs! I did mention its an old PC.... I believe the ram is upgradeded to 1 gb and I dont know if it could be upgraded further.

IF I change out the following-

1) video card to one with HDMI

2) add wifi dongle for conection to airport extreme and NAS drive that contains movies

Then could I run XBMC on a senondary TV?

Possibly with openelec you could pull this off. With xp you won't get hardware acceleration and probably be limited to 720p.
Ubuntu???....you might have a chance.
XP really sucks on those old PC's... If anything, with Ubuntu you will have a really nice web-crawler.
