Video Cards and S-Video

I'm interested with hooking my computer up with S-video so I'm able to watch movies from my computer on my tv. My computer dosen't have an S-video outlet (my tv dosen't either- but my VHS/DVD recorder does), so I'd have to buy a video card and get it installed.

My question is; is a video card what I need, could best buy install this for me and what do you think the price range might be? Thanks!

Yes, if you are trying to connect your PC to your TV using S-video, you will need a video card that has an S-video output.  You can buy a video card at any local BB, and the prices depend on which video card you purchase.  Since your only buying this card for S-video, I reccommend the cheapest card available in your local BB store.  Any card with an S-video will work.



The Geek Squad can install your video card for a $49.99 Hardware Installation, and it should take them about 30 minutes.


It will probably be around $100 for the card + installation.


Also, make sure the video card is compatable with your PC, ask a GS agent to take a look at your motherboard to figure out what type of video card you need.
