    Hi all and good to be here,
    I have this question lingering in my head for the longest time and was wondering...before I go out and get this Viewsonic (VA1912wb) 19" LCD screen to replace my 17" CRT (whiches killing my eyes by the way). I heard that the native resolution is the only way to go if my display adapter support this. My video card said the max resolution is 1920X1200 and by the specs of it, will this card support its 1440X900 native wide format resolution? Does this mean if I buy the monitor, the included CD software will update to the correct resolution, and if not, is there a way to manually input the display resolution? I'm completely lost on this.
    Here's some helpful info of my unit - I have a Micron PC purchased new back in Oct. 2000 (dinosaur era), it's an Intel PIII 1GHZ and the display adapter specs are as follow:
