Hello all,
I am in need of a very basic internet browsing/emailing desktop system. I just bought the following computer and display off of newegg:

The acer system has integrated Radeon X1200 graphics. I realize this only has VGA out and that I would sufffer loss of quality not getting a PCI express video card with DVI out to that Acer LCD. But since this is just an internet/office system I wanted to save the dough...

But I just had a thought. Is it going to be likely that the X1200 won't support the resolution of that Acer LCD (which is 1440x900)? And if not, would it be possible to get drivers that adds that resolution?

And if all fails and I can't run that display at 1440x900 using the integrated graphics, any recommendations of a *really* cheap PCI express vid card that won't cause me a compatibility headache? The system will never be used for gaming, high end apps, etc. Just email and web browsing.

Thanks for any insight or suggestions!

Thanks for the reply!

But regarding my real concern... will the integrated graphics be able to run at 1440x900 which that display requires?

It will run that resolution without problem. If you find the image not sharp enough you'll have to get a card with DVI out. 1440x900 is just on the low end of where you'd want to use DVI over VGA, you'll probably be ok.
