The video card is what the monitor goes into, right? If it is, then I don't have any out cables from there other than the monitor... this computer is ooooooold, but it still runs well so I keep it ;-D

I'll probably get a laptop within the next year and a half. Hopefully I'll make enough money off of Treasure Trooper to pay for it... already $230 in 5 weeks, just $600ish more to go ;-D

From a friend of mine:

You'd need some kind of video output. All computers have a RGB output (that's for the monitor) but if it's an older TV and doesn't have RGB you'll need "some kind" of converter. (I don't think they make one....) It actually might be cheaper/easier to get a new video card for the computer.

How much does a decent video card cost with the necessary output?

Yeah it is old. Your best bet is to call Dell. Tell them exactly what you're trying to do and see if they can help you.

Most of the GeForce video cards have a tv out in SVideo format and there are fairly cheap adapters to go from SVideo and component audio to standard coax (cable) connectors. I just picked up a GeForce for about $60 that could do the job for my computer at work when my other card got toasted.

So, if I were to buy this video card:

(from Dell, it's the cheapest one they have, $24, I really don't care about the video quality, I just want to be able to watch the games on my TV)

would that work? I believe that's an S-Video output... I just have to buy an S-Video to Coaxial cable, and then plug it in, right?

What cord did you use for your sound card?

You've got it. I don't have mine hooked up that way (just bought it for my work computer when the other died) but that would definitely work. The SVideo to coax converters can be trickier to find than the component to coax but they're out there. You'll probably have to check a place like Best Buy and look around for awhile. I think the one that I saw for sale ran around $30-40 or so.
