Can I power this widescreen?

Hey guys... I think it's time for me to upgrade my monitor to a 24" Widescreen LCD. I need the 1920x1200 resolution, but I am a bit unsure if my GeForce 7600GT graphics card is up to the task. Does anyone know if this graphics card is more than capable of handling that big of screen resolution? The specs say it does, but support doesn't always mean 'it works good'. Thanks for any advice.

I see no reason why your video card shouldn't support 1920X1200... According to the spec sheet on Nvidia's website, the card is capable of displaying much higher resolutions at good refresh rates. Make sure you can set your card's output at the exact resolution that your new monitor is optimized for. So, if this 24" display says it does 1920X1200, set your card to 1920X1200. In my experiences, deviating from the resolution listed on the monitor results in some blurry or distorted images.
