    video card questions

    I'm trying to get my computer's video onto my t.v. and what i've found from my research so far (not a big computer guy) is that I need a new video card. My t.v. has a s-video hook up. I don't wanna spend a lot of money on this so money is a factor. I don't really know how much will get me a great video card or a crappy video card. Any suggestions/links is/are greatly appreciated-thanks in advance!

    Re: video card questions

    They are different interfaces on the motherboard that the video card actaully connects to.

    u need to take out ur video card on the computer( computer off) and see which one it looks like. AGP is the older interface people use to use for video cards, but then they invented PCI-express 16x which is alot faster, so is alot more common now days. Basically if u have a really old computer ur probably using AGP.
