Please can someone tell me what this computer wire is called?

Found 20th Oct 2009
As below.

As I asked the other day, I am trying to connect a PC base unit to my Samsung plasma tv but apparently I need to first 'tell' the computer to use the HDMI wire - so I need to buy this computer wire just to plug in once!

This is the one I don't know the name of - I need one end of the wire to look like this

And this (I think) is a serial cable? I need the other end of the wire to plug into a socket like this:
