    cheers,
    you need to check what slots you motherboard has on it. That card is PCI-Express which i very much doubt your board has. Most graphics cards on the market at the moment use AGP.

    also if you dont play games you dont need such a hi spec card.

    check out the AGP and PCI ranges on...

    yer it is AGP
    Just looking around that site, all the tv out cards seem to be cheaper on PCI E cards.

    How come there expensive on AGP? I dont really wanna spend excess amounts

    TVs do have components integrated that process and display an image but they do not have a dedicated video card (GPU card) like computers often do. A computer monitor, without some component to process and display an image, one would see nothing when they connected devices.

    Modern ones do, especially Smart TVs which need a GPU along with a VPU to render, accelerate and decode/encode multimedia content.
