I'm looking to buy a video card that has an S-Video connector so I can play videos on my TV. I currently have onboard graphics ATI HD Radeon 3200 with CrossfireX support. Ideally, I'm looking for an ATI card that also has CrossFireX support. I was thinking about the HD Radeon 4350 (http://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-4350-Graphics-HD435XZAH2/dp/B00293OF8Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1276658677&sr=8-1) but acccording to this documentation (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/jaunty/man4/radeon.4.html) I don't think it has TV-out support. Is this correct? I'm not *that* concerned about getting the CrossFireX support because the most graphics intensive stuff I'll be doing is watching 720p videos, but it would be nice since my onboard graphics already supports it.

Radeon HD4350 is supported by ati's proprietary driver (catalyst/fglrx), so I'm pretty sure you'll have tv-out support after you install the driver.
