The 5200 is the low end of the FX line, and reasonably powerful,
but if you just want xvideo out of the card, and little else,
why even go there.   Plain tv-out cards in the geforce 4 line can
be had for $30, and even less in other chipsets.    

For HDTV, betware that some drivers can't do xvideo at 1900 wide,
such as the open source nvidia drivers.  but for tv-out they are
probably all fine.  if xvmc becomes workable, the mx400 line also has
that pretty much the same as the 5200.
