New Graphics Card and 1600 x 900 Resolution Help!

hello!

I have a 1600 x 900 native resolution HP flat screen monitor, and I want to buy a new graphics
card to use with it. Most card info on Mfg. web sites do not tell what screen resolutions their
cards support; only the maximum resolution.

In choosing a new card, does that card have to specifically support a 1600 x 900 screen resolution
to work with my monitor, or will any current card with a maximum resolution capability greater than
my monitor be able support the 1600 x 900 resolution?

Does the windows operating system ( XP or beyond ) influence the resolution choices available, or
is this all in the particular card driver software? If the card must specifically support the 1600 x 900
resolution, how can I determine if the card supports this?

Many Thanks!

Any modern video card will support 1600x900, so it doesn't really matter which one you buy.

I did find at least 1 current card where the Mfg. specs listed the supported resolutions,
and 1600 x 900 was not on the list. What does this mean?
