where to get TV/out cable (s-video to RCA converter)

I'm looking to buy a TV-out cable that connects my video card which uses s-video to my TV which is that yellow wire that i've heard called RCA and component. This cord needs to be about 4 feet in length. Any help out there?

Go to Radio Shack. They have an adapter for this. I use it on my dell laptop to watch mpeg 4 on my 32" Toshiba TV.

Just realize the $20 ones don't perform very well. I've seen a $100 one from Monster but I don't know if it's any better. You would sure hope so!

BTW, it is called RCA or composite. Component is a much better video connection that uses three cables for just the video signal. One cable for luminance (brightness) and two for chrominance (color). Wait is this the computer forum? I gotta find my way back to Home Theater Hardware.
