Looking for affordable video card with S-Video Out

Title says it all.. when I'm able to get my old PC from the rubble apartment, I'm thinking I may hook it up in the living room to act as a jukebox or something. It's not a powerful machine I think Athlon 600 or something and I don't need super duper 3D graphics.. just to be able to put out to S-Video.

Oh, I'd like to be able to go to a Comp USA to get it.. but online is cool if it's a great deal.

Thanks.

I've read many times that the Matrox G400 is the card with the best s-video output. The G450 is supposed to be worse. You might have to go to ebay to find the G400. It appears to go for $24-35.

I also read that under Windows XP you have to get the G400 Max model to use Matrox's driver, but there is a hacked version that supposedly works with the G400 model.
