A monitor that I want to buy has a recommended resolution of 1680x1050, but the maximum video resolution for my computer is 1600x1200. Is this monitor compatible with my computer? Thanks for any replies.

Monitor manufacturer and model?

Same for either system (if Gateway, Dell, etc.) or motherboard (if onboard video) or video card (if not onboard).

Compaq Presario 5000, Model 5BW220, Made 7/19/00, Windows XP Pro, 15 Gig master drive, 37 Gig slave drive, 512 MB RAM, 631 MHz Intel Celeron processor, Compaq 06C0 motherboard. I'm not sure 06C0 is the correct product number of my motherboard. How can I find which motherboard I have?

Monitor: Samsung, 2032 NW, 20". Newegg.com is selling them.

The monitor will work with that computer, but it will not operate at its' best with the onboard video that came with it. You could buy a video card like this Biostar AGP card. I'm not recommending this specific card, but it would work and provide you with the resolution that you need.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
