I've an old PC AMD Athlon 3000+ Processor and some good Gigabyte motherboard (don't remember the model number), 2 GB RAM and 500 GB HDD, Altec Lansing ATP 3 speakers, wireless keyboard and mouse.

I want to use it as HTPC connected to my Sony Bravia, here I've few queries:

Please suggest an HDMI card so that using one cable I can send the audio and video to the TV.
What is the best? xbmc vs openelec vs plex. I would prefer a physical remote over wireless keyboard and mouse
