HTPC and gaming same time?

I was wondering how much of an impact using a gaming PC as an HTPC would impact my gaming.

My rig:
CPU: Phenom X4 955 (95w)

mobo: GA-M57SLI-S4

GPU: Radeon HD 6850

PSU: Corsair CX500 V2 500W

TV Tuner: Hauppage 2250

I know the first thing people will say is that it will impact my gaming, BUT the Hauppage 2250 does all the mpeg rendering - blah, blah, blah on it's circuit board, so I was thinking that maybe the rest of the system wouldn't be affected as much.

Is this a pipe dream to have both a HTPC and gaming rig in one machine and it will not affect my gaming? :( 

(FYI) The game I will mostly be playing is Star Wars: The Old Republic

Thanks.
