    Can a Radeon 9800 do 1440x900?

    I have a Radeon 9800 Pro and I'm looking to buy a new monitor. More precisely I'm looking at 19" LCD models, which mostly come in the 1280x1024 (SXGA) and 1440x900 (WSXGA/WXGA+) varieties. ATI's page on the 9800 models doesn't list the 1440x900 mode but has the following footnote:

    *16:9 aspect ratio monitors are supported on 1920x1080 and 848x480 on Windows® XP, Windows® 2000 and Windows® ME. The complete list of resolutions depends on the driver version and operating system. NOTE: resolutions are limited by the performance of the attached monitor.
    I haven't bought a monitor in years and am using an aging CRT so I don't know how "standard" 1440x900 is at the moment. Can anyone confirm that a 9800 is (or isn't) capable of displaying a 1440x900 resolution?

    Thanks.

    The card is certainly capable of it, but I can't say for sure that the driver is.

    I'm sure it will work. Why don't you try that resolution on your CRT to test it out ?
