Converting S-Video?

Hey, have a quick question. I just bought an s-video cable so I can play videos on my computer and watch them on my T.V. However I just stupidly realized that the t.v I would use it with doesn't have an s-video connection. Are there any converters to composite video out there, or should I just put some money down on a new tv? Thanks for the help

Might as well get a new TV depending on the size. But I think Radio Shack or simliar might have a S-Video-to-RCA. I know many video cards come with the accessory. You might as well upgrade your TV now to enjoy the better quality.

Because I'm nice today:

Scroll down to the last three adapters.

My experience with composite to s-video (And vice-versa) adapters has not been good at all. The best I got was a fuzzy picture, and the worst was black-and-white. YMMV.
