Default Budget GFX Card Capable of 1920 x 1080?

Hi, very knowledgable forums you have here, my friend recommended them to me. I wonder if someone can help me with my predicament; I have recently bought a telly capable of 1080p, and I am looking into compatible gpu's for a budget pc i intend to build, to take advantage of it even more and use it as a monitor too. I cant seem to find what im looking for, or maybe just the relevant info, are there budget gpus in existance that can do 1920 x 1080 no problem? i dont mean to use the pc for games, if that makes a difference. HDMI out would be a big bonus as the tv has 3 hdmi in's, even one particularly for pc's i think.

Thanks very much

how much are you looking to spend? 8800GT 512MB is your best option right now for money and power

Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

would that do the trick? cheap enough certainly. I suppose a dvi-i to hdmi cable would do the business for connectivity in that case?

I dont like the look of the passive cooling on that one. My 1950PRO is silent, less likely to crash (the cooling on that card dosent look very substantial) and much better performing than the one you linked to. Its going for £45 OBO. Just a thought.

every GPU out today... (even some of the ancient ones) can run at that resolution... this thing pulls 1920x1080 easily....
