I was wondering how I could figure out if my graphics card could support a 1440x900 widescreen LCD. It is a GeForce 6200.

I'm quite sure this card supports 1400x900.

It'll support that resolution, but don't expect ot play high end, or even mid ranged games in that resolution.

So I will be able to run Windows XP and my browser and stuff in 1440x900, but not games. If I instead run my games in 1024x768, I will just get black areas on both sides of the screen, correct?

If it's a TV, I'm not sure if it'll have black lines? Perhaps it won't and it'll just blow up the picture?

It should run basic things, but expect not as good performance running it in that resolution.

Thanks. From the answers I have gotten, I understand that will be able to run most apps (windows explorer, browser, aim, gimp, etc) at 1440x900, correct?
I run my games in 1024x768 - will they be distorted on a widescreen display?

Oh also, my video card has a DVI-I connecter and the monitor I was looking at has a DVI-D connecter. Can I still use it?

Usually comes with some adapters. If you can't use it just order one. They're pretty easy to find.
