What determines the resolution that you can obtain on a PC? I have a 22" widescreen tft, pentium 4, and nvidia 7900gt. Can i get 1680x1050 with this? Aa on the resolution screen it only goes up to 1280*1024.

The Monitor determines the Max resolution (up to a point).

I am using this setting with a GF6600 (but I couldn't get this setting until I recently bought a new monitor), so your card should be capable of it, are you using XP?

If so
Right Click on the Desktop
Uncheck Hide modes this monitor can not display

You should be able to try it.

Do not click OK if the display looks wrong when changed and it should revert back to the original settings.

Don'T know the procedure for Vista but it may be the same.

UK sub is correct. It is your monitor at probably native resolution. The card will do 2048x1536

ahh just found out. It's my dads pc and i havent seen it. aparently he still hasnt plugged in the new monitor yrt so the pc is still reading the spec on the old monitor which is 1280x1024. Should be fine when he fits the new one.

Just for the record, it's easy to find out what resolutions/colour/refresh rates are supported by a graphics card or chipset provide.

Right click on an empty area of the Desktop>Properties>Settings tab>Advanced button>Adapter tab>click on List All Modes.

This brings up a list of all the combinations available and, by highlighting and then clicking on the preferred combination, it can be Saved (elect for Windows not to reboot).
