Post Will my gpu support an external 19" or 22" monitor?

just making sure before i buy.
I have a Gateway MT3707 notebook. great little laptop by the way
and I have been using a little 13" crt for my second monitor.. and it works great with it, looks like a crappy crt does, but it still works fine.
but, time has come, this crt whines and hisses..
So I want to get an LCD to replace it.
So, how do i find out for sure that my graphics will be able to support
1680 X 1050 or 1440 x 900 (depending on which size monitor i go for) ?
my gpu is an ATI RADEON 200M Series. Got 2GB ram, Vista home premium.
thanks,
ZJB92 :happy:
PS. I'll only be using VGA, But I'd like to get a nice clear color picture on an external monitor.

I don't see why it wouldn't support those resolutions.
