    that's assuming your video card doesn't have video-in already. some do so if you're not sure about yours, it would be a good idea to find out.

    that's most likely an s-video out port. how many pins (holes) does it have? if 4, then it's just video out (to display on your tv). if it has like 8-10 holes, then the card should have come with a dongle with s-video and composite video in and out connectors.
