I'm not exactly sure what you are suggesting -- that I get this second 
nvidia card, install it in my current desktop, and then the new card 
gets used with my computer monitor, and the old card (on the 
motherboard, has s-video out) gets used with the TV? You suggest getting 
an nVidia YPbPr Component S-Video HDTV Adapter as well, which makes me 
think maybe the new card would be for use with the TV? Confused! :)
