Ok , im getting a GeForce FX 5200 video card and it has a s-video output. I was thinking, with this card can I hook up my tv to be used has the pc monitor? I know that the text will be blury or something like that but I want the tv to play video games on, so will this work?

BTW: (for who ever has this game) will the GeForce FX 5200(128mb) be enough for Halo:Combat evolved? and I also have a Celeron 2.20GHz processor is that enough to run Halo or will it need a pentium 4?

Sorry, never played Halo. But yes - that's what you can do with S-Video output and an Nvidia card. :) enjoy!

Incidently, it seems like it's a very powerful card ... Geforce FX with 128 mb of ram will rock. As far as 2.2 ghz, that should be plenty, although I've never had experience with Celerons.

was I right about the text being blury? and that the tv will only be good for gaming?

And this has nothing to do with pc's but my tv has no s-video,but I was planning on get a rf modulator with a s-video input on it will that still work?

Yeah, text will be unreadable on the TV unless it's a gigantic font. It's really only good for gaming. Does your video card only have an S-Video out connection? What about just a regular yellow-cable video out? (Usually tvs have those over S-Video, but S-Video is higher quality I think.)

that is the card but if im not mistakend it only has s-video output but a rf modulator will solve my problems

yes you can do that but you will get better graphic's on a monitor gforce fx 5200 won't give you alot of performance gain between the gforce 4 ti 4600 but it will let you play dx9 game's better.

how much are you getting it what do u mean if its the price im getting it for $100.97

and there is no need for a temper )BIG"B"Affleck I dont need the game to run flawlessly I just want it to run smoothly

0

well if you want performance you can get gforce 5600 with 256mb for $170.00
and it would be more better for halo then the 5200

0

don't get me wrong i'm not picking on the 5200 but the only think that card is good for is play game with dx9
like halo its going to be fps game and it don't put out that much fps compare to the gforce 4 ti 4600.
i got a friend that has a 5200 me and him play ravenshield he put out 45fps in ravenshield i put out 130fps in ravenshield the 5600 is better at the performance then the 5200 for a $70.00 dallars more you get a card that will give you performance and it plays dx9

Temper is that some kind of new gamer RAM? Or did you mean Temper like im getting a attitude with you here ...if thats the case Im not but I will if you want me to! I was just posting the facts bra Im not getting a temper with you.

Or you could purchase a Radeon 9600 Pro for less than that 5600 and have stellar frame rates, along with some AA and AF to boot.

nVidia is a joke. They don't care about image quality. It's all about the frame rates, and that's a war they've been losing steadily for quite some time.

so can anyone tell me what the best card is for $100-$120. I want 128MB on it and I want a s-video out so I can hook it up to my pc and decent graphics and it also has to be an pci card.

! question the GeForce FX 5200 has a built in cooling fan do most or all video cards have that?

1st?Did you google any cards for prices
2nd?Ive seen some exact models that have just a heatsink and then another exact brand and type have a fan dropped into the heatsink.....cheap cards that do not put out great graphics dont require a fan so not all cards have fans. Mine has a fan I also bought 2 heatsinks to put on top the memory on the video card.

ok this is exactly what i need a video graphic pci card $100-$120, I would need it to run games smoothly, (all my games rcommend 32MB to 64MB so 128MB is more than enough for me) I want to be able to hook it up to my tv and when I play games on the tv i want the picture to be decent to clear, so I guess it needs a s-video output to be the clearest. then I need it to have a colling fan and I would perfer the card to be HDTV ready Im pretty sure the GeForce FX 5200 is HDTV rdy.

If anyone can give me a link to one of these cards I would be very thankful I have been searching for days.

And my computer has a 3D intel extreme graphics AGP (64MB) if I install a pci graphics card will that interfer with the other AGP card?
