Hello all,

I finally got enough spare parts to put my old PII 266mhz back together and thought it would make a perfect mame box.  The olny problem is the old monitor I was planning to use went kaput.

I have a 25" TV collecting dust in the garage so i was thinking about getting a TV-out video card, but the tv only has composite inputs.

The card im looking at is an ATI Radeon 7000 which has an S-vid output.

I was wondering how badly the picture quality degrades when using an S-Vid to Composite adapter.

Im not to hardcore about graphics, I just want them to look somewhat nice and more importanty be playable.

If anyone has any advice, sugesstions, or personal experience for me I would greatly appricate it.
