Can anyone recommend a video card for my new Mac Pro that has an S-Video output?

    You need the ATI Radeon X1900 XT

    I guess I should have been more specific. I need a
    card that has an s-video out, in addition to the two
    existing video outputs - like the AGP card on my
    sawtooth G4 has.

    The ATI cards with the built-in video port didn't allow you to use video and both of the other ports at one time.

    If you need video out, and two other displays, on the Mac Pro, you need the ATI 1900 plus another Mac Pro graphics card of any kind.
