    I am shopping for a graphics card that is relatively inexpensive with at least 32 MB of DDR and an Svideo out, I really don't pay that much attention to this area of computers, I am a college student and I would like something I can link into my 27" TV, to prepare Powerpoint presentations, and watch videos I download, I understand my resolution is going to suffer going to the TV.Thanks for the help.

    How inexpensive do you mean "inexpensive"? If you are looking for S-Video, you are looking for a bit of a price. (but just a bit) I'm thinking (with out researching it), a 32 mb DDR with S-Vid will be at least $100 to $150. If that is what you are willing to spend on this than might I suggest Raydoen? I have a 64 mb DDR with S-Vid and I really like it. Raydoen makes good stuff. They also sell the all-in-wonder which I think is $100 or so and that has 32mb DDR and S-Vid and a tv tuner... (if I recall correctly) but I suppose you use your tv for tv... so you won't need that. If you are conscerned about losing quality going through your tv for powerpoint and movies, than go with the Raydoen 32mb DDR. (I'm thinking it is $100)

    Hope that helped.

    HERE is a link to buy.com with three comparison models on it. They are all 32mb DDR and the ATI Raydoen is the cheapest at $139 and looks like it is the only one with S-vid out between the three. The raydoen doesn't say if it has it or not, but I am 99.9% sure that it does infact have S-vid out. On mine it didn't say, and it has it, and I remember looking at buying the 32mb one, and I remember it having S-vid out. Good Luck.:)
