1. whether my chipset supports the maximum resolutions of the above mentioned monitors?
2. Do I need to buy graphics card to adjust the resolution?
3. Does anyone have any negative review for the above mentioned monitor?
I have a couple friends with Acer's slightly older H223 and H233 Hbmid monitors and they like them a lot. I can't offer any insight into particulars with the new "V-series" though.
I will agree that regardless of your monitor choice, you should install a discrete card. Even if it's not a "gaming" card, it's just the right thing to do. That on-board GF6100 wouldn't do any new monitor justice.
And according to Wikipedia, the GF6100 is capable of higher resolutions, but for some reason, people just can't get them to go beyond 1366x768 or 1280x800. Seems that particular problem may have a lot more to do with refresh rate limitations of the monitor than actual limitations of the GPU itself.
Meh... I wouldn't waste $30 on an 8400GS card. May as well spend $45 or so and get something that can actually render 3D worth a damn, accelerate Blu-Ray, decode HD video, with built-in Dolby HD Audio over HDMI, etc etc etc... Hmm... Sounds like an HD5450!
