Best video card for DVI output to HDMI input?

Has anyone had success connecting a PC (DVI output) to a TV (HDMI input)? I, myself, have not tried it yet, but have a couple of questions before I do...

Reading the countless forums and webpages that discuss this, there seem to be a lot of issues (sync, overscan, etc) connecting a computer to a TV through HDMI...although theoretically it seems pretty simple to me.
I was wondering, are there specific video cards that any of you have tried that have not given you any issues? I have a Panasonic EDTV (and the only input that is currently free is HDMI), a PC with Windows Media Centre and I still need to purchase a video card.
To connect to the TV, all I know for sure is that my video card will have to have a DVI output, but will things be as simple as connecting the two together, or will I need to put more thought into what kind of video card to get?
So, is there anything to worry about, or can I go pick up an average video card (like the ATI Radeon 9500) and excpect DVI to HDMI success?
