video card recommendation

I have a Pentium 4 machine with a Gforce 2 video card. I have had
trouble installing Fedora Core 3 to this machine in the past because of
incompatibility with Nvidia cards. I want to replace the card with a
card that has TV out and install FC3 to this machine. I saw at a
friends house today that the settings for video out on his computer (I
didn't check which card) are controlled in a program in windows XP
(the only OS on that particular computer). Well, naturally, I will not
be able to use that program on FC3! So what video cards are compatible
out of the box with FC3, software and all? I do not play games, the
computer is a work machine, but I intend to connect it to a TV to play
DVD's (hence the card switch). The TV is PAL standard. Cost is a
concern: I would buy the least expensive card that I could.

Thanks for any recommendations.
