Hello, everyone! I'm really hoping someone here can help me. Just had to buy a new monitor (old one kicked the bucket), so I'm now the owner of a new widescreen monitor. The problem is that my computer is no spring chicken and has no widescreen settings. I've got it set to 1024x768, which works for now, but the native resolution for this monitor is 1366x768, and the black bands along the sides of the screen are driving me nuts, plus, I figure if I've got the monitor, why not take advantage of the larger screen? I know I need to update the video card, but I don't know what the computer can take. I've had the computer for a while, and it still suits my needs just fine. I'm not a gamer - the only game I play is Farmville on Facebook, lol. I just want to utilize my monitor, since I bought it. Let me see if I can answer questions about my system. (Don't laugh, please.) Windows XP Pro (SP-3) Motherboard: Intel D845GRG AAA84341-204 1.0 GB RAM CPU: 2.80 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 Current video card: RAGE 128 Pro The sticker for the power supply is in an awkward position, and I can't read the wattage, etc, but I can see that it's an SPI FSP300-60BT (12V), if that helps. I don't know if that answers all your questions, but I hope so. I'm not as computer literate as I'm sure you all are, but I'm sure I could handle replacing a video card. Is there a video card out there that would do the job without me having to shell out a lot of money or replace anything else? I don't need anything fancy - I'm not into graphics intense games or anything, just something I could fix myself, if at all possible. My other option is to take it into my computer shop, and I don't want to do that. It would be 2 and a half weeks until I got my computer back. Thanks for any advice anyone can offer!
