Question Will the LCD Widescreen work on this PC?

Ive got a pc I , both directions of resolution go higher than what this lcd monitor calls for BUT it doesnt have the exact resolution listed on the ad:

ACER V223 Wbd 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor - 5ms, 2500:1 Dynamic, 1680x1050(WSXGA+), VGA, DVI (HDCP), Black ET.EV3WP.001 at TigerDirect.com

Will it still work? I know on my bro's I had to upgrade drivers, but I can't find any updated driver's for this card (ATI Radeon Xpress 200).

TIA guys,

It will work but not at it's native resolution so it won't look its best. The monitor you linked says item unavailable though.

I have the same monitor and it came with both a dvi cable and a vga cable so it will definatly work. It also will work at the native res. I looked up the radeon xpress 200 and it says "Supports resolution up to 2536x2536@32bpp" so you should be fine with it
