The generally perceived order of signal quality from worst to best is

RF Modulated
Composite RCA ( Yellow (Video) Red, White(Audio))
Component (Red Green Blue(Video)
Standard 15 pin D-Sub (VGA )

Although there is occasional arguement over VGA and HDMI's order  depending on how well you can sync the resolutions on the screen and your video card.

I suspect that going the Component may be the cleanest option for you ,so  you will need a Component to Scart adapter,

It sounds like your  card's "S-video" is actually a propriety output of some kind, so use the adapter cable you have to connect it via a RGB adapter to the SCART on the telly.
