    looking for the thing to connect my video card to my t v.

    i have a visiontek xtasy 6564 gforce 3 videocard & i am trying to find the thing that you plug into the card (not the monitor connector) that would allow you to use a tv rather than a monitor. i am not sure what you would call one of those connector things & i was hoping that someone would be able to help me with this. thanks

    It is an 's-video to rca video' cable.. maybe ask at Radio Shack?

    What audio-visual inputs does your TV have? You can find out from its manual.

    If it has a SCART input (as is common with most modern TV sets) you are going to need an RCA to SCART adapter, an S-Video to Composite Video lead and a 3.5mm Stereo Jack to Twin RCA/Phono Audio lead.

    If it has RCA inputs you don't need the SCART adapter.

    If it has an S-Video input + RCA/Phono Audio inputs (usually if a TV has them they are on the front panel) then the audio lead is the same but you just need a plain S-Video to S-Video lead.

    Hope this helps! Most of this stuff can be found in any consumer electronics store or a variety of places online.

    MuFu.
