Question Building a Media Center PC/DVR

I am going to be building a Media Center PC/DVR and I was wondering about a few things. How do I know which Video Cards can potray the recorded data onto the TV in DVD or HDTV quality. I dont' know that much about resolutions, but I am pretty sure HD is 1080pi(not sure about the correct unit). Most computers when connected to a TV are poor quality and you cant even see it that well. I also want to be able to play games on it to, so it must be a decent graphics card.

I usually play games such as:
Half Life 2
Doom 3
Battlefield 2
and others which are just as, if not more graphically demanding.

Thank you for your help in advance.
