Is there a PCI video card that will support 1680 x 1050 resolution?

by on April 30, 2009

Q: Does anyone out there know of a PCI (standard) Video Card that will definitely support 1680 x 1050 (widescreen) resolution? I have an old computer but a new monitor that needs that resolution so it is a problem.

    Dear Mark,
    Thanks for the reply…
    OK Original card is quoted by Dell as ( K1010 CRD,GRPHC,VID,PCI,RAGE-XL ) it supports up to 1600 x 1200, but no widescreen option shown.
    Thanks

    One of the biggest reasons for that is that that card isn’t really supported with new drivers anymore.

    I would suggest you try this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133245

    Which will support widescreen and the luxury of regular driver updates from http://www.nvidia.com

    This all assumes you’re happy with the rest of your computer and its performance and aren’t planning any PC replacement/major upgrade anytime soon.
