the 450 I linked to has one (well, mini HDMI, but it comes with an adapter).

It's a good solid little card at a great price. It may start to choke at the really high resolutions, but at the lower resolutions, it really does the job well.

I am planning on getting a GTX 560 when they come out, and will be getting a better monitor, all that to go along with the sandy bridge system I hope to build. I will be keeping the GTS250 as a spare.

Hey, go ahead and buy Just Cause 2 or Metro 2033 and run it maxed with 2XAA. You won't get capped 60FPS.
