Will 4 yeatr-old PC support Widescreen TFT Monitor

  Bertie B 10:34 02 May 07

My daughter has a four year-old Packard Bell Imedia 5075 PC running XP - still very good for what she uses it for [email - internet - Word & Excel] but she wants to save desk space via the use of a new TFT Monitor.

I have a similar PC and I installed a 19" TFT with no probs, but not a Widescreen version.

QUESTION: Does anybody have experience in using a widscreen monitor with an older PC - i.e. are there any problems in supporting the required resolution which I think is in the order of something like 14400 x 900??

THe anwser is all to doo with the power of your GFX card. The shape of the monitor is no big deal. If your daughter does not play games then the gfx card does not need to be that powerfull,
