I'm running Win XP with 2 Nvidia 7300 GT video cards. The first card provides 2560 x 1024 to 2 19" monitors (1280 x 1024 each). The second card provides 1280 x 1024 to a third monitor. I have yet to try Win 7 and XP Mode and I am wondering what resolution(s) I can get? I have large XLS' that span 2 monitors and would like to be able to do that under XP Mode. Any one know, or can check, what resolutions the emulated display driver can provide. Thanks.

Just out of curiosity: What do you use a three-monitor setup for? Uber-mega-jumbo productivity, I suppose. Gaming? Graphic design?

Stictly business. The XLS' that we use are 2-4 MB and rather than continous panning back and forth on 1 monitor I stretch it over 2. The 3rd monitor I then have Outlook.

We are slowly migrating to Win 7 but have some legacy apps that need to run under XP.

That's why my question stands as to what resolutions are available under XP Mode.
