I need a simple S-video out video card...

I am setting up a pretty weak system for my father. It will be used solely for a golf simulator and doesn't require much in the way of power. I need a card that will allow him to use a TV with s-video rather than a monitor. It would be nice to have a 128 mb one that will allow for some cool graphics with the simulator, but he is not concerned with that.

We are dealing with a celeron 366 mhz with 256 mb ram, video is currently the shared crappy Intel deal, and I am running 98 SE.

Any ideas of what I can use?

Does it have an AGP slot?

I'd go to Newegg.com, and check out their video card section. You can easily search on 128meg cards with SVideo out. There's a ton available. I'd probably check out one of the ATI 9200SE cards. They're pretty cheap ($45).

There's an older MX card (I believe it is) that is acknowledged to provide the best s-video output. It may have been mentioned in here (perhaps by me) and you could probably do a search on "s-video" to find the post(s). It would have been quite a while ago.

I will look. It will need to be PCI.

I believe it is available that way.

I've done a bit of research and it appears people dislike the GeForce4 MX440 more than they like it.

I did find some good comments on cards based on the nVidia FX5700. Here are a few that have PCI (one has AGP).

I forget what I picked up, but just a basic PCI 128mb card with video out. It wasn't the mx, though. Thanks.
