I currently have an ATI Rage Fury Maxx 32Mb card, but i'm interested in using my Television as a monitor, so is there any good ideas on a card that can do that? I would be looking for the same performance (or close to) as the Fury Maxx. Or is this a bad idea??

PIII650 w/128MB, SBLive!Value sound, ATI Rage Fury MAxx....
Many Thanks....

Yes, look at the review on the 3d Prophet II MX when tested against the other top of the line cards. As long as you don't go to the high res ie: 1600x1200, it stays right with em' for the most part. Exception is the GTS and GTS Ultra. I just ordered the 3d Prophet II MX DDV (dual display video). Suppose to be 20 percent faster than the MX card. It should be available anytime now. ETA was Oct 27th. Yes, you can hook it to a TV and use your computer monitor at the same time for something else.
