You don't need that adapter. All you need is an HDMI cable. That will give you the best picture (and sound) to your TV.

Oh, wait. . . Does your TV have an HDMI port?

Ok. From what I understand all GeForce 9 Series GPUs support PureVideo HD. Which, in turn means they all support TV out.

The VGA to S-Video converter will work, just don't expect to see a high quality picture.
