I need, preferrably, a good video card that has TV out or a converter. We need a system for displaying Powerpoint Presentations on a TV screen at our church.

I have bought a XTASY GeForce4 MX 420 but haven't opened it because it says I need a 266 MHz or higher CPU (AMD K6-2 or Pentium II or higher) and PCI 2.1 compliant socket.

I want to make sure I can use it before I open it.

I have two systems...
First - Toshiba 7201 Pentium II 200 MHz MMX, Win 95, with 48 Meg.

System Devices displays the following:

Use IRQ Steering
  Get IRQ Table from PCIBIOS 2.1 Call

System diplays - IRQ Steering Disabled.
                 IRQ Table not found.

Second - IBM PC Compatable i430TX mainboard
Windows 98 Second Edition, Cyrix 6x86 MX(tm) 200MHz CPU with 64 Meg.

System Devices displays the following:

(checked) Use IRQ Steering.
(checked) Get IRQ Table from APCI BIOS.
(checked) Get IRQ Table from MS Specification Table.
(unchecked)  Get IRQ Table from PCIBIOS Protected Mode PCIBIOS 2.1 Call.
 (checked)  Get IRQ Table from PCIBIOS Real Mode PCIBIOS 2.1 Call.
IRQ Steering enabled.
IRQ Table read from PCI BIOS using real-mode interface.
Mini port data processed sucessfully.
Mini port loaded sucessfully.

Is it possible to use one of the systems above without it costing much.  I had hoped to use the XTASY card I bought with the Toshiba system.  Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.
