I have a Hercules GeForce 3 Ti 200 (http://www17.tomshardware.com/graphic/01q4/011218/gefor...). The card comes with a short cable for the TV out. Now I wonder what cable do I need to buy to get the signal out to my TV.

Thanks!

Hard decisions: Intel or AMD, Windows or Linux, BG2 or Counter-Strike, computer or women.

If it has 4 pins and a block, it's an S-Video cable. In order to use it on your TV, you either need an S-Video input, or an RCA Composite input and an S-Video to RCA Composite Video adapter.

I've got a Hercules GeForce 2 GTS, they may have changed their cabling arrangement for the GeForce 3's but I doubt it.

On mine, the socket on the board is an s-video (or S-VHS) output. Like Crashman says that's 4 pins and a small plastic block in a circular arrangement. Just get an s-video cable and plug it directly into an s-video input on your TV.

The small cable that came with the card is an s-video to composite converter. If your TV doesn't have an s-video input, connect this to the card and then get a composite cable to go between the converter end and the TV composite input.
