I am running XP SP2 and my motherboard/graphics are Asrock AliveNF6g-VSTA mobo with on-board graphics nVidia GeForce 6150se edition 5.61.32.33.03 taking 256 ram

My current monitor is a 19" widescreen with a native resolution of 1440x900 which I can set without problem.

I am considering a larger monitor with the consequently greater resolution, possibly a 26" widescreen.

Before I spend my money, how can I determine how big a resolution can be supported by my graphics as above ?



Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer.

that particular integrated card is rated to display up to 1920 x 1200. however, if your planning on doing any real gaming, that big of a resolution will kill your frame rate, (actually most modern games will have a sorry frame rate on that card, I have the same one integrated on my motherboard, thats why I upgraded video cards) but for movies and web browsing and normal computing tasks it will do fine at that resolution.

Thank you for your time and trouble in replying...........I now know how far I can go.

I don't do gaming, my main aim is image editing and graphics creation through Photoshop etc. so that sort of resolution would do fine.

Thank you again.
