[mythtv-users] Do I need TV-Out (Or: How to connect DC30)

I am about to install MythTV on system to become a HTPC.

Setup is:
P3 Coppermine 800Mhz
Soyo 7VCA Motherboard (Chipset VIA Apollo Pro133A (VT82C694X+VT82C686A))
128Mb PC133 RAM
ATI 3D Rage Pro 2X AGP
Pinnacle/Miro DC30 Plus
Onboard AC97 Sound

What I haven't figured out yet is wether TV-out support on the AGP adapter
is needed or not. The DC30 board has S-VHS/Composite in/output for video
and 2xRCA for sound. Can I connect my TV to the S-VHS output of DC30 card
or do I need to install a TV-Out enabled Graphics AGP adapter? And what
about the sound? Should I use the DC30 RCA connectors for in/output or
should I use the motherboard audio controller connectors?

I'd also like any feedback on the other hardware. Is this system to slow
for handling recordings? Since the DC30 is a hardware MJPEG device, I hope
it will do.

And, do I need more RAM?
