newegg.com. Best bet probably an older 9xxx Radeon or 5xxx FX

man.. thats old school! u should just try to upgrade everything a little bit.. since all the 64bit and 6800s - x800s, n all that stuff.. the AMD Athlon XPs arent too expensive.. and u can get Corsair ValueSelect 1GB (512MBx2) PC3200 for around $80 on newegg.com

like FadingTheory said.. just go check out newegg.com - great place!

There is no risk in hooking it up to your TV :amazed:

Any video card with S-video out will work. It is pretty common so just look around for the older 5xxx nidia cards or the 9xxx ATI cards.

They are cheap. You said you only have $70 to spend.
