Default hooking pc to 47in tv

i have a old HP pc and i was thinking why not hook it up to my tv so i can surf the net in my recliner . there will be Zero gaming on this just youtube netflix general surfing and stuff like that.

the tv is a LG 3d 47IN 120Hz lcd led

the pc has
intel e3300 2.5ghz duel core cpu
3gb of ram
250w PS
Edit: forgot to add it has integrated graphics

i was looking at
GPU PNY VCGGT610XPB GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Newegg.com

WiFi adapter NETIS WF2113 300Mbps Wireless N PCI-E Adapter with 5 dBi High Gain Antennas and Low Profile Bracket Compatible with Windows MAC Linux OS - Newegg.com

my budget is about $100 bucks if i need a better power supply but if i dont id like to keep it under $60

i think what i picked will be fine but i thought why not ask some smarter people

That'll do it. Although that wireless card is probably trash.

But does his MB have a PCI-E slot for it, A lot of older ones do not so you better check to make sure, It may but better be safe than sorry.
