Default TV-Out on graphics card - is there a converter?

I have a 256 MB graphics card... It has 2 slots - a slot for connecting your monitor to the card and it also has a TV-Out slot...

I want to hook up another monitor to my computer - is there a converter for the TV-Out slot so that a monitor can be plugged into it?

I've got a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200.

Thanks for yuor input

i have the same card and it DOES NOT work with two monitors so dont even attempt it. But i'm just waiting for g80s and then i'm getting dual monitors. The quality and response goes way down with the 5200. I tmight be a little better with the 256 version but i doubt it would be that much better.

Is there any graphics cards anyone can recommend for dual monitors?

Not to expensive but good for playing games etc.
