I wish to find an adapter that can convert my SVGA or DVI port on my video card
to my ANALOG 27" older TV. Have heard several recommendations, but on a limited income drawing SSI disability, I have few options financially, but of course wish to have the best picture possible. Being poor, I opted out of Satellite TV and use a regualr antanne with a govt provided (low income and free) digital to analog convertor box.

The older TV "does" have the three RCA jacks and need to use them I guess since the antanne uses the cable port. If you would please, share any experiences you've had for input, and what suggestions you might give (please send links also) so that I can decide what to purchase. It has to be as economical vs performance as possible as I am probably limited to a $60 overall fix for the solution, but will consider others. An elsewhere suggested PSP3 walked right around my request for "econimical" "inexpensive" solutions, and I believe you have to subscribe for online content anyways but am not sure.

I found these items below on eBay and am not sure whether to buy one of them since I am not sure yet if it will work. As I said, I ain't to bright and to me, understanding that the computer puts out a digital picture through the video card (right?) I am confused as to whether or not I can use one adapter as compared to another, and merely assume I need a convertor box such as these...
