Your video card likely has a S-video port that could be use. However if you only have a intergraded video card, your computer likely doesn't. In that case, does the TV have a DVI port?

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 LE if thats the graphics/video card type, and the tv i was lookin to get is http://www.pricerunn...HD-Product-Info i dont think it has the DVI port, so is there any way of using that tv and being able to use it as a monitor for my pc?

Buying a £30 video card would allow you to do this, otherwise no I cannot with your existing hardware.
