I just got a new Xforce 550 video card but my monitor is an old Intergraph monitor, Intergraph says it was made by Panasonic but they only have monitor drives for windows 95, seems its an old monitor not supported any more. Specs on the monitor says it is a SVGA type My computer device tab shows that I am using a generic VGA driver. my computer and monitor are working fine but just want to optimize it
My question: would getting a generic SVGA driver be better than the VGA, if so where can I find a SVGA monitor?

VGA generic drivers are what are supplied by Windows so that you can get an image up on the screen. What you need to install are the specific drivers for your Xforce 550. These should have been provided on a CD with the video card. Very rarely do you ever need to install monitor drivers. I don't know when SVGA monitors hit the scene, probably in the late 80's. What operating system do you have?

monitor drivers. Is their a Generic SVGA monitor driver?
