I have basically the same setup, but the 2.3ghz 45w proc. Everything works great, I have a tuner card and can record tv via Vista Media Center. You probably won't play any graphic intense games, I can play Portal on decent settings but that's about it. Also be aware the case only accepts 1/2 height cards, but everyones making those now.

Yes, the 780g can play HD no problem. Toms Hardware did a great review on the 780g.
