your graphics card has dvi output (your first picture). if your tv has dvi input, you need a dvi-to-dvi cable (example). if your tv has hdmi input, you need a dvi-to-hdmi cable (example).

Two, actually. So I'm guessing that DVI to HDMI cable is the right one?

I have the same cable and used it when my monitor died. Great cable and that price is just awesome. I just used the little 30 inch LCD TV 720P until I could decide on a new monitor.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
