You need an active one.

And it is not 'approved' by AMD. This does not mean it certainly does not work but I think you will have a higher chance of success if you stick with the AMD's list.

If I may be so bold to jump in here, I too have a PC monitor and a Sony TV that im trying to run both at the same time with a 6870, in short, I cannot. Do I need one of these display port adapters and do they also transfer sound? I dont have speakers so we are using the Tv for sound.

you can use the Sony TV w/ sound...if you plug the Sony TV through the HDMI cable, that is assuming that your sony TV has HDMI connections

I was going to say that, but I wasn't certain that it would work.

If you only have 2 monitors, you don't need to use DP

dunno if anyone mentioned this to the OP yet, but active DP adapters will have two USB connectors; one of them is to power the adapter.
