Will this HTPC work for HD playback?

    I recently picked up this HTPC off of ebay for like 65 bucks. Is this sufficient to use mediacenter to play back music/hd movies and shows without any skipping? I will hook it up to my network hardwired.

    I appreciate any feedback.

    For HD playback you are probably going to need at least a dual core CPU with 4G of RAM.
