I'm looking to hook up a 20" Apple Cinema Display to my XP desktop at the monitors native resolution of 1680x1050. I know I need the DVI-ADC apapter but I can't seem to find a card that can do the widescreen resolution. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

Most newer ATI cards should support this res- you just need an application like Powerstrip to create it. -Vince

The resolution is pretty much limited just by the card's avaliable memory (from what I understand). Most (if not all) modern cards should do high resolutions fine. One thing I do find though is that Windows doesn't usually allow very high resolutions. In Windows I'm limited to 1600x1200, while in Linux I can REALLY crank it up nicely. Posted Image

Well, it's just what resoltuions are being displayed to you. Using an app like powerstrip allows you to define custom timings, up to whatever your card will accept. -Vince

It's a shame it's not built into windows though. That would be nice. Jonny K.
