It depends, what are you doing? A server OS like Windows 2008 Server is good, but if you are using it more as well, windows 8.1 professional does the job.

Alright, the GPU doesn't need to be that powerful, a GTX 750 would work fine.

Probably, but I have not had any success with RDC. Try some VNC program.
