    You can get an ATI Radeon 9550 with a DVI out for approx £35 you will need a DVI cable & a DVI to HDMI adaptor.Whatever you get try & get a card with DVI the picture quality is so much better.
    If you want to get a better card i sugest a Radeon 9800 pro or a Nvidia 6600GT but a
    9550 should be fine for most people.

    You could try one of the ATI all in wonder cards with the tv tuner aboard i don't know how they compare with my PCI tv card.
    Prob any card with DVI would be fine however it would be worth getting at least a radeon 9200 they were around £30 2 months ago.
    a VGA card will give you a good picture just not a great one
