I have a Visiontek GeForce2 MX 400 it’s over two years old.
Can’t find out anything about it on the Visiontek site; that is weird it looks like they don't use Nvidia anymore or I'm looking in the wrong place!
The generic manual that came with it doesn’t help.
What I want to know about is that port next to the regular three row 15pin video.
What is it called?
How is it used?

Its most likly the S-Video OUT port. Which you can plug into a TV set or get an adaptor to convert it to RCA.

I agree its likely a TV-Out port for output to a another source like a TV or VCR, etc. It could be either a RCA connection like found on all TV's and VCR's or teh newer S-Video connector now being used on TV's and stuff. The S-Video has either 4/7 pins plus a plastic guide, RCA is just a round plug.
