PC questions.

I've never played PC games before always on console. I didn't like PC games because I had to sit in an uncomfortable chair in front of a measly 27" screen using a keyboard. Now I know its different. I just saw some videos on YouTube of real life cars I like on GTA4. I was amazed.
I have a desktop computer but know its useless because I can't hook it up to my bigger LED tv. I also now know I can use a Xbox type controller on a PC but this as much as I know about this.
Am I able to install a hdmi out on my desktop thats 3 years old or should I buy a new one? If new what are the qualifications that it needs to run GTA4 w/o breaking the bank? What controller do you recommend and how hard is it to add the cars into the game? Is it simple? All input appreciated, thanks!

If your video card has DVI output instead of HDMI, you could just get a DVI-to-HDMI converter.

DVI plugs look like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface
