    Going beyond 1920x1200 resolution

    Hello all,
    I'm looking to get a monitor with a higher than the usual 1920x1200 resolution, such as the SyncMaster S27A850D which can display 2560x1440.
    Now my question is: do most graphic cards handle this resolution or do I need something beefier ? Note that I don't game, I only do image processing and programming with tons of windows open. From looking at the specs of graphic cards, the highest resolution is rarely indicated clearly.
    Thanks

    Modern graphics cards, yes - on the digital output. Most can be vague, as it's dependant on how many screens are attached, I imagine. That said, a quick look at a component supplier shows max resolutions on just about every card. I prefer multiple smaller screens, so I've never had to go that high!

    Actually the house will be getting more crowded so I'll have to get a smaller screen instead of bigger...
