Hi,I need a replacement for my video card that went out.I don't really know much about computers so any help will be much appreciated.
I am looking for a card that has the DVI and S-video hook ups.If anyone can find a match on Amazon it would really help me out or any other sites also.There is a EVGA GeForce 6200 512 MB on Amazon if someone would let me know if that would work as a replacement?

I don't do any gaming or anything major.It is just used for normal internet searching and youtube videos and maybe some Hulu or Netflix.I don't need any big upgrade,I just want one with an S-video hookup and that will work with my PC.

Thanks for the help

My info is below:

Dell XPS 410 (I got it around the end of 2007)
Windows XP
Home Edition Service pack 3

6320 1.86 GHZ
2.00 GB of RAM

The Video Card is a

Yes they are extremely rare now - it seems there are pretty much NO new cards made with the S-video output.  Virtually everything now has HDMI out though.  There's this for example but I don't think it's particularly good value in terms of performance per $.

I have an ATI 4870 With 2 DVI ports and an S-Video port and 1 GB DDR5 video memory. It was used for a month when I replaced it with a NVIDIA card for the multi processor features.  Fifty S and S&H will get it. Two zero Eight six eight nine three one seven seven.

my nvidia 9800gt that i use in my XP machine has two dvi-i out ports and an s-video out also. it is a few years old and there aren't any new models for sale. it is pci slot compatible and requires one 6 pin power connection and is single slot width. i picked it up second hand and it has been working pretty good. these cards were legendary a few years ago in an SLI configuration, so much so quite a few were never upgraded and are still in circulation until the new DX11 forces them out which is why they can be picked up pre-owned for cheap .
