S-Video is, technically speaking, the Chroma and the Luma signals. I have heard many complains about the GeForce 8600gt Video card.Well coming to the point... First of all check if the driver has the plugin or the codec required, better re-install the driver (latest) which u can get from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us. If the driver is OK, then there might be something to do with the connecting/interfacing cables. If u have a multimeter, u can check if the interfacing cable is OK or not by checking the resistance of the cable (of course, resistance has nothing to do with the subject, but just to show very low resistance).Most of the problems occur due to cables only.

To make a long story short, the answer is no. Games that require 64mb VGA won't work with your hardware. drivers or software won't fix that only a hardware upgrade will do it. Plus s3 brand cards are notorious for bad driver support.
It all depends what kind of games you wish to play, you can probably play all the older games like Quake or Half-Life or older than 1997 just fine on your system with that video card. But you won't be able to play almost any of the newer 3d games out there. If you want to play new games like Battlefield 2 for example, you would at least need a new Nvidia or ATI brand video card on a brand new computer.
I would suggest you upgrade the video card something like the card in this link! Please note it specifically states on the box that it is for Mac G5. You also need at least 512MB system memory and osX 10.3.6 or higher.
Cheers & Good luck.
