HDMI = HDTV out?

I'm after an HDMI capable graphics card and so far there has been only 2 choices namely Sapphire's X1600 pro HDMI(£90) or Asus 7600GT (£140). My question is I've also seen cards like the Asus EN7600GS with an HDTV out adaptor. How is this going to connect to my LCD TV? The reason I want an alternative is because I don't want to spend anything more than £100 for it.

Isnt dvi pretty much the same as hdmi?

You can get dvi > hdmi cables that would plug into your tv (and almost every graphics card made within the last 5years)
