My System Specs

Default Need a video card

Ok, so my 22" monitor decided to go away to monitor heaven. I was using a 4870 512MB with this monitor. So, for the next little while i have to decided to use my 32" bravia as a monitor. Will the 4870 be enough for a screen this size?

It will be as fast or faster, because your TV is either 720P or 1080P and both resolutions are be equal/lower than 22" monitor resolutions (assuming you have a 1920x1080 monitor). But you'd be better off with a 4890 considering how cheap they are.

EDIT: My bad, I thought you said your 4870 died, not your monitor
