Default How do I tell what res/hd

OK I want to hook up my game consoles to my monitor since it seems to have alot better picture than my SD TV has. This is just a temp thing till I can buy a new HDTV but something in 1080p isnt cheap ..So can this monitor handle any HD? and what setting can it be put up to in HD if even possible?

Heres a link to the same monitor I have ..I have searched but havnt found anything that told me anything but what resolutions it has dont know if thats how you tell by the resolution or not..heres the link NEC MultiSync FP1370 : Read reviews and compare prices at

i dont know if you can even connect scart to VGA. im sure there might be a convertor somewhere. ive seen the opposite being done, where someone at my old school projected a video from the computer to play on a TV next to it. just search google for a scart-to-VGA/DVI(whichever you have) adapter
