    Yes, the tv evidently had an s-video input plug. Most graphics cards (up through the GForce 7 Series) usually came with a DVI adapter and an s-video cable.

    You need a PCI Low-Profile Card....I had your computer ;)...that was the reason I upgraded; while there is room for expansion, there isn't'll be fine for you.
