Default Please judge my computer and help with video card

I am about to build a new computer,designed for gaming and multimedia.
So far I chose the following components:

Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe NVIDI
Athlon 64 2x 4800 +
2 g/b memory ( Crucial )
500 g/b Seagate Hard drive

Still have to choose a video card.What would you suggest ?
And: can TV out being added after or is it built into the video card ?

Thanks

RobertXYZ

Hmm...do you want to wait for the DX10 cards, which are coming soon? Or if not maybe the 7950GT....they're in the $300 range.

could do two 7900gto's or a 7950gx2, either option will cost you roughly 500 though. 7900gto's are a little faster than 7900gt's and 7950gt's.
