Hi to all. I'm going to buy a new lcd monitor( a Acer X193W+BD) to replace my old CRT. My question is will this monitor work well with my current computer ( a Dell dimension 3000 running windows XP W/ integrated intel extreme graphics 2?? Can I just plug and go?? Thanks . Fritz
As long as it has a vga output it should work fine. I would make sure if it has DVI input for the future. Also with the integrated graphics and VGA you normally cant run as high of resolution so if you got a graphics card with DVI output and if the monitor has DVI then you will be able to get much higher resolution.
Check your resolution capabilities of your Graphics card. The display hamluis linked to has a Recommended Resolution (AKA Native Resolution) of 1680 x 1050. If not you may want to look into getting a inexpensive video card. Your Intel graphics chip does support flat panel displays and resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 BUT may not support a wide screen monitor at 1680 x 1050.
