Inexpensive way to get HDMI output from my compute

I recently purchased a new computer and very happy with it, with one small exception: it doesn't have HDMI output. Would like to stream movies, TV shows and etc and display them on my HDTV. Is there a relatively inexpensive way to get HDMI output on my PC?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Will you run Windows?

If so you may find playing "protected" content quite the hoot.

But the cheap way is a video card with a HDMI output.

Any models of video cards you think I should consider?

I've been using those by ATI or Nvidia.

I shop at Newegg.com for such.
