If the TV has an HDMI connector, yo ucan hook it up straight to the graphics card. There are cables that have HDMI at one end, with a DVI or VGA (depending on what your card has) that plug straight into the card.

You dont say which Nvidia card you have, but it probably doesnt have an HDMI port on it. If you went for a new 5000 series ATI card (for instance a 5770, 5850), these have a native HDMI port, and an HDMI cable plugs straight in the back.

Depends what your preference is. Maplin stock the converter cables, although Ebay tends to be cheaper. I have used both, and they work fine :)

I don't understand your post. What does "changing my TV" mean? You want to buy a new TV? HDMI is a video and audio connection type, and PCI Express is a graphics card bus technology. The two have nothing to do with each other. You can get PCI Express graphics cards that have an HDMI out port that allows for a connection to a display type that supports HDMI in. Some TVs have HDMI in ports that support computer connections. Some don't. You'd have to verify that feature is available on the model you're looking at purchasing.
