    I currently run the BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 AGP Graphics Card with a 19' Viewsonic monitor.

    http://hardware.gamespot.com/BFG-GeForce-6800-GT-Overclocked-256MB-13260-S-9-9

    I ordered this monitor last night,

    http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/...us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-4221&link_number=

    My question is this. It says "To optimize this monitor's performance, your system must be able to support WUXGA resolution (1920x1200)." I talked with a tech from BFG, about the card, and they said that they 'only support resolutions of 1600x1200', but when I check forums and reviews, I see "Max Resolution (external) 2048 x 1536 / 85 Hz "

    Does this mean that with a standard driver installed, I can't go above 1600x1200? I am curious if I will always have two black stripes on the sides of my screen, because incompatible resolutions.

    I posted this here, because I see a knowledgeable group of people talking about topics that fall in this general category.

    Thank a lot,
