Hi all

My Dell laptop has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics card. I need to run an external monitor with the highest possible resolution (for work) but finding it difficult to determine what resoltion the card can deliver

Can anyone please help

Thanks

depends on what you need to display on this external monitor. my laptop has an integrated radeon 4250 and i watch 1080P movies on a 40" tv with it. No problems at all, and i can almost do it in low power mode (stutters a little when i do so i gotta use balanced or high power for hd movies)

Supports 18-, 24-, and 30-bit digital displays at all resolutions up to 1920x1200 (single-link DVI only)3
Each includes a dual-link HDCP encoder with on-chip key storage for high resolution playback of protected content4

One integrated 400 MHz 30-bit RAMDACs
Supporting analog displays connected by VGA at all resolutions up to 2048x15363

DisplayPort™ output support
Supports 24- and 30-bit displays at all resolutions up to 2560x16003
Integrated HD audio controller with up to 2 channel 48 KHz stereo or multi-channel (7.1) AC3 enabling a plug-and-play cable-less audio solution5

Depends on which port you use and as drew said, depending on your usage you might get slow performance at high resolution with that card.

Hi

I'll be viewing price charts/graphs (candlestick charts) for currencies / commodities etc. Ideally I need 24" Monitor to display several weeks of data, there's a lot of fine detail in the chart I need to see clearly

Does this help?

To get you a full explanation would require a bit of big tech words ;) 
Basically, HDMI is for consumer audio and video connections like from a DVD or BluRay player to a TV and Display Port is pretty much for PC to monitor connections. HDMI can be used for PC to monitor connections also, but there are a few tech differences. If you read up on both standards at www.wikipedia.com you can find out all the details if you want.
