OK, I know this is very basic stuff...but....I'm confused.
Just bought this monitor:
ASUS VH236H [Monitor]
Newegg.com - ASUS VH236H Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 20000 :1 (ASCR) Built-in Speakers
It's native resolution is 1920 X 1080. Great. However, right now, I'm still on my older Dell system with the Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller [Display adapter]. When I go to my screen resolution options, 1280 X 1024 is the highest resolution option. So does that mean my video card simply can't handle any higher?
However, my last monitor was a 22" Acer monitor:
Newegg.com - Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 800:1 Built-in Speakers
and it had screen resolution of 1680 x 1050, which I was getting. I had the option for that But that options not there now for new monitor. What's going on?
Do I need to download something from Asus?
Also, on this system, I guess VGA to VGA is really only option that makes sense, correct? Can't use DVI?
FYI, Dell Dimension 3000, Windows XP SP3, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HD, Intel Pentium 4, 3.0 GHz.......
