Hi all Just about to build an HTPC which will be used on a 42" non- HD TV. I've had a bit of trouble choosing a graphics card and so far I have come up with the AMD Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5. If I do upgrade to a full HD TV would this be able to handle it, or could it even be over kill ?
Here are the full system specs in case you need them:
Asus M5A97L-M AMD Athlon II x4 640 Silverstone GD04B Case WD Caviar blue 500GB HDD Sony AD-7280s-0b 24X DVD CiT 450W Gold PSU Windows 7 OEM (X2) Kingston 1333Mhz 4GB DDR3 AMD Asus Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5
Thanks in advance. Adam

Even an ASUS 8400GS-SL-512MD3 will support a full HD TV, as long as you don't want to play or need 3D.
For strictly media playing (nothing more intensive than blu-ray playback), the HD6670 would be considered overkill on a full HD capable monitor/HDTV. If you're wanting to game on this system, then the HD6670 is probably a little on the low side. I'd probably look at the HD7850 instead.
