Hello there, hope you have been enjoying the weekend! I don't suppose you have had a chance to find any suitable cards?

Sorry to be a burden, I'm just eager to get this computer up and running. I've been trying to find something suitable but to no avail.

Yes, nice long weekend
I have been looking, and haven't found anything quite as 'amazing' as you reasonably want, but I am still looking.
Thanks again for telling me the details for the connections, sorry I hadn't noticed them in your first post

from my research, I'm pretty sure the best graphics card for a CRT TV would be a s-video port on the card with an adapter for the television's port (the one from the video port from the RCA connectors)
this will only supply video though, do you have external audio?

Hello. I have external audio, that will not be a problem! Just need the right card for video.

Hello biggles. If you can find one which will fit the motherboard, provides s-video output and hdmi, and provides at least 1gb of ram, I think we will have won. Having said that, I have read reviews that it will be difficult to read text on tv from computer using this connection?

Thank you so much

yeah, as it's a crt tv with a rather old connection, being close to it will make it hard to read text. If you are far away (typical viewing distance) from the screen, video should be ok quality, and if text is magnified it should be fine to read. Imagine PS2 or original Xbox quality. Not bad, but not to crisp.
