Hello
I am purchasing a new Dell 20 widescreen panel monitor for my Dad who has either a 2300 or 2400 Dell Demension desktop. I just want to make sure that once I install the monitor I will be able to update the driver to handle the 1600 x 900 required resolution
. Can anyone tell me if I should go ahead with the purchase??


Thanks

I'm not really sure about screen resolution issues with LCD monitors.

But...you can check the maximum supported resolution for any video chip/card on a system.

Right-click on Desktop, click Properties. Click Settings tab.

Move slider all the way to right, this will (normally) be the max supported resolution for that chip/card on that system.

FWIW: http://compreviews.about.com/od/multimedia/a/LCDSpecs.htm Outdated but useful.
