    The screen above takes an NTSC signal, like what you get when you have a vid card with tv-out on it.

          To answer your other question (what is the diff between composite and s-video?) Composite is the lowest common connector for video. The signal carries all the information needed to draw the video image on the screen. The decoder card in the monitor has to do more work with a composite signal, and if teh quality isn't that great, then you will see artifacts, mostly dot crawl and chroma shift. S-video is the next step up the quality chain, and I would strongly recommend using it if it is available. Whereas a composite signal is a single channel, s-video uses two channels, one to carry the b&w info and one for the color info. This relieves the decoder card of the monitor and allows for better color reproduction.
          PAL is inherently better at color than NTSC, and has greater resolution, so wherever possible, you should have better results if you can get a PAL monitor. I believe most computer video cards allow you to select your output format (PAL, NTSC, SECAM).
