I already have the motherboard. Only I gave it to my dad for his office for my upgrade to a core 2 duo supporting board. I only need to give dad an alternate pc and I can bring that PC back home + I need that adapter we talked about from somewhere.
Hey for that kind of money, I would rather build a new dedicated HTPC with my old MSI motherboard. Wouldn't that give a reasonable output? Or is the output from Graphics cards that good??
In any case, both options are way out of my league. (too expensive to bother).
From what I read in some amazon.com reviews, these vga to composite adaptors are expensive (around 2000 Rs.) and are not worth it (the output is not good). Also the cheaper option of wire works only if computer has support for it (most don't).
So I think I will give up. Use a dvd player...
Too bad edit is disabled. Strange!!
Edit: I googled a bit and I am approximately sure the TV tuner has only input ports and no output ports. So the only option left is to buy a VGA to composite cable or the VGA-to-composite/component/HDMI adaptor. I'll google back and report.
Sorry for all the trouble guys. I forgot I had "upgraded" to Gigabyte 965 mobd. Really really Sorry.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have doubts:
Was it a computer shop or electronic shop? Sorry for being dumb but I have tried so many shops that I am totally confused. Do you remember the shop's name in Nehru Place?
Do you mean a printout of the picture in the link I posted above.
Yes I do, how...
I wish to connect my PC to my tv to watch movies on it. My motherboard MSI-K9A GM2 FIH has a tv-out but requires an external bracket. Tried to find it in shops in SP Road, Bangalore but no one had any clue of what I was talking about. Google had no clue either (no ebay sellers)
Just found this...
which one of the two samsungs to buy? (confirm if one is not out yet)
even in patna, both are not in stock. also any idea of the prices?
do they really look similar to LCD TV's (I saw one LG 21" which does).
Offtopic : Really Sorry cudnt resist, but is it safe to order say "5 different perfumes" or "a single camcorder" from amazon.com or would that too be stuck(read too risky) with customs and shipping. If stuck would I be billed at home(i'm ready to pay) or I need to go to a govt. office in say...
