Default TV-Out Card??

I want to display my computer video on my tv, and I want it to be cheap. Anyone know the cheapest way to get your computer display onto the tv? I recently got a video card but didn't need tv-out capability at the time, wish I would have thought of it.

I've got a 32mb ATI Rage 128 AGP 2X card with *-video and composite TV-out. You could run dual vid cards and switch between the two, or run just this one. It'* four years old, but seemed to still get the job done when I last used it, Fall 2002. You want it?

you should be able to pick one up rather cheaply, check this site out too while your at it,

Also unless you have a moniter TV text will be blurry and games will not run, I used to have my computer hooked up to my TV for DVD when my DVD player broke, and it was good for pics and movies but thats about it...

for some reason I wasen't getting email updates that this thread got hits. But thanks for the links, definately going to check them out. And the no games part is cool because I just want to be able to play movies from my computer to my 26" tv
