Default ** GFX Card Advice With TV-Out **

sponsored links

 
As above need an S-Video out as i assume this is the best output you can get off a GFX card.

Or an encorder card should od the trick as long as it has a S-Video Out.

Basically i need it to Play my DVD/VCD/SVCD on me TV monitor is to god damn small lol

So basically need some good options, do not need a blinding card i dont think ?, if i should get another GFX card i would need the specs to match the one currently in my PC which is a:

Hercules 3D Prophet II MX 32mb Geforce 2.

So any opinions will be much appreciated.

Cheers

yep, all you need to do is buy the same version of your card but one with a TV-out, namely an "nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 -TVout"

for the purposes you mention, I would get a hardware decoder card, the best available is the Hollywood Plus card by Sigma Designs.

www.sigmadesigns.com

You can get them for around 50, and the quality is superb, far better than you will get from a TV OUT video card.
