This review is from: DIAMOND Stealth Radeon 7000 DirectX 7 S60PCI 32MB DDR PCI Video Card
Pros: VGA, S-Video, and DVI make this video card adaptable to many different kinds of monitors and uses. Installed fairly easily, WindowsXP SP2 even had the driver w/o needing to install it from the software disc. Most users will be up quickly.
Cons: ATI Control Panel software IS NOT INCLUDED! For most users/purposes this is not really necessary. However the default windows display settings will not allow you to select the S-Video output as the primary monitor (only the VGA or DVI port). That means if you want to run say, ZSNES on a TV you'll need the ATI Control Panel installed to override the windows settings.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to attempt to use it on an old Dell XPS300, which is a Pentium II 300mhz machine. The idea was to play console emulated games via a TV. The PC is admirably running this video card way below min spec (as well as Windows XP!!). So...yes you can!READ FULL REVIEW
