What video card do you have?

It should work fine though. You may not be able to use really hgh resolutions but it should work just fine.

no need to upgrade the video card to use a screen. If your monitor used DVI, and you dont have it, buy a $5 converter.

My 4550 with the stock video card (Geforce MX440) supports my 19" Wide screen LCD.
I don't think you will have any trouble.

The native resolution of my 19" wide screen monitor is 1400x990.
My card has no trouble with it.
