I built one of those for a grandma friend. Not only does it have a TV out but it will boot and display a TV signal with no need for a monitor. It only has one PCI slot if I remember corectly, but it has onboard LAN and video and sound and processor. THey have no floppy connector. All you need is RAM and an HDD and PSU and you are up and running.
