Re: hmm.. graphics cards
The 8500 came out around 2001... It had some age on it just as my old computer did, so I just built a new one *see sig*
The TV Out has always been good on nvidias. The problem with mine was first it kept messing up(errors and such) WHen I updated drivers, it works, but it just doesn't have "Theater Mode" like my old ATI did. IT has something similar, but you have to do a few things to make it work with DVDs.
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
