Windows 7: Graphics Card/Onboard Graphics for Media Centre PC

Hello there! This is correct. I do want to play these games and do not want any lag.

I do not want to buy a new TV, I have a flat screen upstairs, but I like CRT for the picture quality on TV and games consoles (N64, PS2, Wii).

So what card would you recommend?

Thank you for all your help.

this card seems to say HDMI/s-video: Newegg.com - XFX HD-435X-ZAH2 Radeon HD 4350 1GB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card
and this one also seems to be HDMI/s-video: Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-98GEY3G-FSL GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
from what I could see in the blurry nvidia card's picture, it had two dvi ports and what looked like an s-video port, but i'm afraid i'm unsure. also, the nvida's price tag made my mind melt
the first (ati) one looks like it has a circular shaped port on it, presumaably the s-video port. also, the first one seems to just have a heatsink without a noisy cheap fan. unfortunately, neither seem to support direct x 11

also, from what your timezone shows on your profile page, i'm guessing you are also not in the US. i'm afraid i've never ordered anything from newegg, so i am unsure whether they do international shipping. if they dont, you can probably find the same card on amazon or ebay.

Hello! Option 1 looks good, apart from supporting DirectX 10.1 and not 11. Damn.. Any more?

Whilst you are looking, I wonder if it is worth mentioning that it may not require s-video. I know that you can get dvi/vga to hdmi cables, so maybe you can get something similar which would split into something which could connect to the TV and work?

ok. could you please list all the connections that your television has? (or rather, all usable ones. eg if you have a scart socket taken up by a set top box, then don't list it unless you think you could use a scart splitter )

I have 1 PCI Express x 1 slot free and 2 x PCI 2.2 slots free. Currently, the motherboard has onboard graphics via dvi and vga outputs.

CRT TV (Panasonic TX-28PL4 Quintrix). The TV has an S-VHS plug on the front, as well as RCA Audio/Video sockets (three jacks). On the rear, it has 1 spare scart input.
