    Are there any VGA to S-Video adaptors or VGA to RCA adaptors, I'm trying to make a cheap entertainment pc and would rather not spend the bucks on a good video card

    Get a TV tuner PCI card. I hear decent things about the Leadtek TV2000xp.

    It's around $48 on NewEgg. You just split the cable from the wall to the card.

    You don't have to have an allinwonder, just the separate card

    What video card do you have?
    Many have a S-Video port on the card itself. With that many include a S-Video to RCA adaptor.

    As for the TV Tuner card, last I checked that's only for video in, not out.

    well, what i want to do is buy a cheap laptop which means it probably won't have a real video card, and even if it did it probably won't have s-video, so i want a vga to s-video or rca so that i can use a tv like a monitor
