My Graphics Card's maximum resolution is

  wee eddie 16:28 26 Mar 2010

1680 x 1050, otherwise it's performance has never caused me a problem.

Now I am wishing to replace my 15" Flat Panel by a 22" job. Most, but not all, of those on the market seem to have a native resolution of 1920 x 1080.

The Question: Should I stick with my current Card and get(say) the Samsung SM2243W or should I replace my Card and get a slightly cheaper Monitor?

my step dad uses a 22in which has a native resolutioon of 1920x1080 and i think it looks blurred and horrible, i have a 24 with 1920x1200 and my old laptop had a 17in with 1920x1200

for me i woulnt have any less than 1920 on a 17in monitor and if i had a 27 id want higher than 1920

if the monitors native resolution is lower it doesnt look blurred, but i always use the native resolution

it is mostly personal preference

Everything I can find on the ATI 1300 suggests a max resolution of 2560x1600.

Where are you finding the specified max resolution from?

when i upgraded from 16" flat screen to 24" I was using vista and set the monitor to 1920x1200 its default on HD. The picture was excellent and razor sharp. Later on upgraded to windows 7 unlike vista which adjusted ok had to do a lot of tweaking to get the picture sharp with w7.

i think hi-end resolution is 2560 x 1600 of ATI HD5970 2GB graphics card and ati and nvidia throwing randomly.
