I need to add an HDMI output to a Pavilion P6210t so I can connect a 40 in TV for my Monther who has limited vision. I think adding a video card with HDMI is the best option (as opposed to using a VGA to HDMI converter) for best resolution. Graphics performance isn't an issue for her. Is this a good approach and are there any suggestions on a basic video card with HDMI and low power (the PSU is only 250W)? What about driver installation, BIOS setup, etc?

It is going to be a problem finding a video card that will work with the 250W power supply unit (PSU). Also, newer cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS. Your best option would be to upgrade the PSU to at least 400W. I like Corsair products.
Here are the video cards that are shown that will work with the computer:
- GeForce G210
- Radeon HD4350
- GeForce GT220
- Radeon HD4650
Here is a card that has HDMI and should work in your computer.
