    I can relate; I've been using the older cards; until recently I was 
using a GeForce4.  I think unless you 'go nuts' picking an Nvidia card, 
the kind with the TVOut, I think you'll be fine.  The $500+ brand-new 
stuff could be iffy, but that's only because it's new.

    Now as to a certain model number, I won't be able to help you. But 
the keyword "tvout" combined with "nvidia" should let you find what 
you're looking for.

    I say all of this about Nvidia since I've had such good luck with 
them; ATI is available too, but I just can't speak to any of their 
equipment. (I started boycotting them many years ago, and for the last 7 
years I've not had any choice but re-use anything that's already purchased.)
