Hello,
I'd like to get the ASUS PA248Q monitor which is a 1920x1200 on a 24" screen. Unfortunately my entry level computer has integrated graphics ATI Radeon HD 4200. I'm guessing the graphics is too basic and won't allow the full native resolution of this monitor. Am I correct in this? If so, what can I upgrade the graphics in my computer to? The computer I'm referring to is the HP Pavilion p6754y. I'd like to get the full resolution 1920x1200 with a different card. Any Ideas?
Thanks

4200 series supports single DVI up to 1920x1200 and dual dvi up to 2560x1600
Displayport up to 2560x1600.

So assuming you are using a single DVI then yes you are good to go, but that is maximum.

It should be fine. But you may not be able to use Windows Aero.

Sounds like I will be able to get the native resolution on this monitor. However I'm confused as to why or how it would affect Windows Aero, but then I'll admit I don't completely understand Windows Aero. If you can explain briefly, that would be appreciated.
Thanks

Aero is Win7's glass-like interface/display. Makes the desktop and othe parts of the Windows experience look better.
Here's an explanation from Microsoft: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-i...

Aero Requirements from Microsoft's site:
Aero hardware requirements

Your computer's hardware and video card must meet hardware requirements to able to display Aero graphics. Check that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements for running Aero:

1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

1 gigabyte (GB) of random access memory (RAM)

128-megabyte (MB) graphics card

Aero also requires a DirectX 9 class graphics processor that supports a Windows Display Driver Model Driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel.

For best results, you might also want to follow these graphics processor recommendations:

64 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution that is less than 1,310,720 pixels (for example, a 17–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has a 1280 × 1024 resolution)

128 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 21.1–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 1600 × 1200 resolution)

256 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution greater than 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 30–inch wide-screen flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 2560 × 1600 resolution)
