i am really new and my first post, apologize for asking stupid questions.
i am planning to build a new rig, but i would like to get a new display first before anything else(still saving money)
currently i've got a p4 2.8ghz and a Radeon 9200 SE running. if i were to get a 2408wfp 24" dell, will my machine sufficient to support the required resolution?
i've tried searching, not really sure what does that mean on the statement they wrote on thier website.
"NOTE: resolutions are limited by the performance of the attached monitor. DVI-I monitors will be limited to 1600x1200. "
as far as i know the card has a dvi and vga port. and the dell display has a DVI-D cable. http://ati.amd.com/products/radeon9200/radeon9200/specs...
For 2D and video, it should be OK, but full 1080p videos (Quicktime being my reference since they have HD traillers), it will lag. Only 720p videos were playable on my old Athlon XP 3200+ with a 7600GT ... CPU being the bottleneck I think.
