Default connecting pc to tv

How can I connect my pc to my tv so that I can watch my dvds on the tv?
My pc is about 6 years old so my graphics card doesn't have the best connections, probably just video in and video out.
What sort of cables do I need?

You are going to want to pick up a converter that takes your computers connection, plugs in, and then connects into the TV.

Go to your local Radio Shack, Best Buy or whatever and get some A/V cables. You know, the ones that are yellow, red and white, hook them from the video out on your PC to your video in on your TV. Done.
You could say I've been around.
