Default Will My System Support This 22" Monitor?

I would like to buy a 22" wide screen monitor, however, I want to make sure that my PC will be able to handle such a large aspect ratio while gaming.

This is one monitor that I am considering:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236011

I have an eVGA 7900GT graphics card, 2 (soon to be 4) gigs of RAM, and an AMD Opteron 165 processor.

Will I be able to run this monitor smoothly in its native resolution of 1680 x 1050 while playing games such as Oblivion?

Anything I should be aware of before making such a purchase?

Thanks!

-Nathan

I am using a Geforce FX5200 which is a 8x AGP card and it runs my 22" LCD...only problem is my monitor only gets to 1440x900 rather then its native res of 1680x1050. Still looks nice. Thank god my 7950GT is on its way...

Also my friend uses a 7600GT with a 20.1" and plays it perfectly!

Side note: It's not worth it to get 4GB of RAM.
