Any of those cards will work. However it's not obvious to me with a
cursory glance that these are passively cooled.
I've tried several of these and a passive card is mandatory, the fans
in these budget cards are really whiny. Replace a fan with a heatsink
for 5 say.
for ~30 you can get a 128MB 6200 passive card rather than a 5200.

If you look around you can get 256MB for the same price, but I'm not
sure of the benefits of more ram here.
Note that I've had variable results of playback quality [poor colour]
when using the S-video out. However, i suspect this is more to do with
my cheap TV than the Graphics card as everything is fantastic on a LCD
monitor.
