You mean display port? Get a HDMI to Display Port adapter. Go here: Video Cables - DisplayPort

Monoprice has the best prices for every cable you could want.

It depends on your TV. Some TV's stretch the HDMI input which distorts the picture and actually look much better with VGA. Other TV's do not do this and you will get a better picture with HDMI. If your TV is 720p it probably will stretch the input, 1080p TV's are often a little better about this.

Can you give the exact manufacturer and model of your GTX460?

I'm guessing he did mean mini-HDMI, rather than DisplayPort. Either way is possible though.
