yeah, it will run it fine. an x300 or something would run it fine, lol, maintaining high resolutions aint too hard for cards, it is just when you try to do gaming with it that your computer will attempt to commit suicide. if you plan to game in that resolution then you definitely need to invest in a new card, lol
