BFG 8800GTS OC 512MB-26" Monitor?

Just a quick question. Does anyone know how a BFG 8800GTS OC 512MB would perform on a 26" or 27" monitor- movies, tv, some FPS gaming, general browsing?

Thanks, John

Thanks for responding. Not that much really I suppose.
It's going with my old pc into the bedroom so I'll mainly be watching movies and (when the DVB-T2 tuners arrive) watching HDTV. Plus some general browsing, forums etc, using the magnifier.

I have a neat trackball wireless keyboard so I could game, but I'll be in bed about 8 feet away so in reality I'll probably not bother.
I can always come in the lounge and play on my "new" one

I was going to go for something top quality like a 23" NEC IPS panel but then I thought about the GPU and whether this would be a waste of money when most likely I'm just gonna check my emails in the morning and watch TV and movies late at night anyway.

This made me think about size

^ What he said. Everything will be fine except for gaming... that is unless you want to play Pong, in which case you will rock!

Thanks for responding guys

It's a tough choice; a 26" IIyama looks nice but now the Samsung F2380 (with cPVA panel!) has caught my eye and it's a very good price.
Also I'm still tempted by the lovely NEC Multisync EA231WMi with it's IPS panel.
Maybe that's overkill in a bedroom situation

PS I can imagine the pc concerned will get my 260GTX when I upgrade to a FERMI chip in my main rig.
