I use the pc as my main machine, and sometimes to watch movies on my tv. My tv is connected via a dvi to hdmi cable. I can run windows at 1080 resolution fine however i drop it down to 720p so I can read from across the room.
I am looking to play games like
star trek online ms flight simulator X call of duty star trek legacy counterstrike Fear any other pc games
I currently can run most games at or around 12x10 resolution with full settings without any issue, FSX can sometimes given a little lag. I can push it up to the monitor native resolution also, but have to drop some settings. On the tv, i have only experimented with game resolution of 12x10, some games look like they stall a little when pushed to 1080 resolution.
Eventually i will build a core i7 system, with win 7 64bit, but im taking it one step at a time. I would like to play games on my tv with the current system at 1080 resolution.
I am thinking about nvidia however i am flexible. Please advise.

Your 9800gtx should be fine. I use a gtx 260(not that much better than your 9800gtx, just a bit) on my 55" sony 1080 tv and everything works fine.
