What? No he won't.

1. They have made HDTV tuner cards for years.
2. HD compatible monitor? You must be joking, HD = high resolution. They have had monitors that are "HD" resolution for 15 years!! The monitor I have is 2048x1536, HD 1080p is 1940x1080, so monitors are not a problem. Even if his monitor doesn't support that resolution, he can scale it down to whatever he wants. HDTV is not some all mighty power that is completely new and different. It's just high resolution video, it's not that big of a deal.
3. Vista would provide nothing but a performance DECREASE. Vista is not some all mighty power that controls the universe. It's just Windows XP with a pretty GUI and a free virus scan program. Actually there's an HDTV tuner card that ONLY works with Linux, and not with ANY Windows operating system (including Vista ).
4. A lot more? Like what? What else does he need other than any operating system and one of these cards (I'm sure there are more, these are the search results worth looking at on Newegg):
