NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 compatibility with Ubuntu?


I am new to Ubuntu and looking for some advise. I want to install a new graphics card on my PC that is running Ubuntu 10.06 LTS. I need a PCI Express graphics card that has an HDMI output on it as my TV only has an HDMI input. It has no VGA or DVI input. I am looking for a card that is good for watching HD content but does not need to be great for games. Can anyone recommend a card in the £50-£60 price range that works straight out of the box with Ubuntu? I have seen the PNY NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 which looks promising. Is anyone using this card in Ubuntu and if so does it install easily?

Nvidia are VERY supported in Linux and they have done so for more than 10 years now, unlike ATi who only recently started supporting it
