looks like a SCART connector. Buy yourself a SCART to SVideo converter and you'll be good to go. My 8800 gts 512 has Svid out I'm sure yours does too.

EDIT: you most likely will not enjoy playing games through that old analog TV though your resolution will be VERY limited IIRC 800x600 max which sux hard and it will be quite burry.
