If there is a powerful on-board graphics card, you may not need a separate graphocs card. Any ATI-chip card labeled HD #### will allow you play an HD video. To play Blu-ray, you'll need a Blu-ray DVDROM or Blu-ray DVDR/W. The monitor should also be HD-capable, too.

You do not need a strong GPU to play HD video. An current integrated GPU can handle any HD video. Also, even a current CPU can handle all HD videos. It is not like playing a demanding game. For current systems a HD video is no more stressful than an antivirus scan.
