You *may* be able to get away with a PCI/AGP-based NVIDIA MX440 type
(or later MX4000) card that has TV-Out. I'm not current on the level
of TV-out support in the open source NVIDIA driver, so you may need to
ensure you get a video card supported by the NVIDIA binary driver.

However, as Rod says, be aware that using a slow CPU with a
non-hardware capture card that will produce non-XvMC acceleratable
video, and a slow video card without driver support or for MPEG2
acceleration, is not the best situation.
