Still learning in on this...but here goes.

Recently bought a custom built computer (was going to build one, but found a deal on one that had some of the stuff I was looking for, particulary the MB). The system came with the XFX Radeon 4890 card (1x S-Video and 2x DVI). I'm running the system to my television, which is a Panasonic Viera TC-P46G10. The TV only has HDMI and VGA.

I was given a DVI-to-VGA adapter with the computer. Using the adapter and a VGA cable, I only get 1280x1024 resolution. One of our televisions is hooked up with a DVI-D SL - to - HDMI cable. With that cable, I can reach 1920x1200 resolution.

Is it possible to get 2560x1900 (or anything better than 1920x1200) with what I have? Upgrading the TV at this time is probably out of the question, and I'd rather not upgrade the card. Is 1920x1200 the best I'm going to get?

the maximum resolution for a ATI 4890 is 2560 x 1600. Im not sure on this but Im pretty sure your going to need a digitial signal to achieve this, not a analog, so you will need to use a DVI to HDMI adaptor to achieve that high of a resolution. The next thing to consider is the TV itself, if the TV doesn't support 2560 x 1600, its not going to display at this resolution, you will need to find a lower resolution, one that the tv supports.

The native resolution of a TC-P46G10 is 1920x1080. That is the greatest resolution the screen can display.
