Answers :

You don't say which graphics card (many people change the stock card)
\015\012
\015\012Your best bet is if your card has S-VIDEO out.
\015\012Only use a good quality cable as many of the s-video cables are just not up to the job.
\015\012
\015\012There are also VGA to COMPONENT cables about. Experience shows that this does not work as well as should be expected as it too has a pretty high chance of failure to analog tv.
\015\012
\015\012There is a 50/50 chance of it not working with analog. That figure changes dramatically with flat panel tv
