    What card would you recommend for this? I don't need a really high spec
    card, won't be playing too many games!
    Just want one that can give a signal to a CRT Monitor and at the same time
    to a Television via a S-Video cable...

    Oh and can this be done???

    Not a problem. A now cheap Ti4200 card is a good option and offers damn
    good graphic power. It depends on the specs of your PC as well.
    S-video is the best way to go. By changing the settings, you can have a
    video playing in a small window (or full screen) on the monitor while
    playing on the TV in full screen mode. That's the biggest advantage of
    having TV output.

    And Not supported with TVtool..

    Don't forget the Screen modes must be similar to the TV Mode, ala 60hz frame
    etc, and 800 x 600..

    TVtool lets you use other modes..

    any GeForce card can do simultaneous clone or span output to TV without
    TVtool. not sure what you're referring to RE the Hz... my monitor runs
    at 85Hz, the TV at 50Hz, both different res.

    by rates if you mean different PAL/NTSC resolutions and frequencies,
    then yes you can change that in display settings. a few GeForce cards
    (440MX for example) have nVidia's own custom TVout chip and won't be
    reconized by TVtool which is a shame.
