Cheap video output card?

My Mom has been scanning in old slides for herself and family members and wants to copy slideshows onto VHS for viewing on television. From the sounds of it, she doesn't have an output on her current card. She doesn't need a super, high powered gaming card, just something cheap that has an output that she can run to the vcr. Any reccomendations?

All in wonder 8500. Or better yet, just buy a capture card. Try www.harddrive.com and search for it there

She'd be better off getting a DVD player (if she doesn't have one yet, she should anyways) and making VCD's or even the special picture CDs. Better quality- cheap output cards can be awful- and the CD's are easier to make, copy, and play. They last longer too. I know that MS has some software windows now that is very easy to use to make slideshows.

Just a thought.

the geforce2 mx /w tv out should be around $30-$40. check out pricewatch.com


this is the cheapest thing i could find with tv out, but i'd highly recommend the gf2, since who knows how reliable the cheapie is.

I suggested that first too. Apparently some of the people she'll be doing this for don't have DVD players. Plus, she doesn't have a burner and she's not looking to spend a bunch of money on a DVD-R drive.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I believe she ended up with a Radeon 7500.
