I have a Dell PC and I was interested in using a tv as a monitor or playing videos from my PC on my TV using S-Video. Well my card didn't have s-video so I came across this card:

One problem. Look how long that MFker is! It won't even fit into my computer! I didn't even know cards came in different sizes. I doubt there is no way this will work for my computer?

It's only slightly longer than the connection itself, are you sure it will not fit into your computer?

It's just your basic GeForce MX 64Mb AGP video card.

This one in particular

Introducing a new dimension in graphics performance, the ASUS V8170Magic incorporates the enhanced nVIDIA's GeForce4 MX420 to deliver more powerful graphics performance. ASUS V8170Magic powers through today most advanced multimedia applications with DirectX 8.1 as well as OpenGL 1.3 support. Additional features such as TV-out, and a useful software bundle, make the V8170Magic the most complete graphics cards in 3D market

Shouldn't have any problem whatsoever getting it to fit into your system. don't expect any sort of mind numbing graphics though, it's a rather mediocre and dated card at best.

Actually your Dell may have the equivalent or better already in it's onboard graphics adapter.

even with S-Video, it's going to look ugly. Unless your TV is an LCD I wouldn't even bother, I'd save myself a few bucks. Many LCD TV's have a standard VGA (computer) port so you can use that or even better an HDMI port (which is what I use) and that gets sound as well as video.
