Yes you can, as long as the resolution of the monitor is supported by the onboard video. The size of the monitor makes no difference. Resolution makes all the difference.
I have a 23" screen at 1920*1080. Until last month, I was using only my integrated video and it worked great.

It depends a lot on what chipset you have. My motherboard has a Geforce 8100 GPU built in and the resolution I had it set at was the maximum it can support. There is a possibility that your chipset's video will not support high resolutions. I do happen to know that the Geforce 6150 SE (a common integrated GPU) supports resolutions of up to 1920*1200.

resolution is key. also keep in mind what your doing with it. If your into gaming, and say you have an integrated Nvidia 6150-it will run 1920 x 1080 just fine for normal computer applications and movie watching, however, if you get into gaming, particularly graphics intensive games your framerate will suffer the higher the resolution you go. now, that being said most monitors will run at a variety of resolutions, I can even have my in game resolution different then regular. for example, I can have my desktop resolution set at 1920 x 1080, but when I enter game it plays at 1680 x 1050 for a better framerate if I so desired. just something to keep in mind. :D

Then I suggest you get a standard 22" Widescreen LCD, which will run at 1680 X 1050.
