To Enable Or Not To Enable?

Hey guys, I bought a Acer P236H today. It's a 23 Widescreen Full HD Monitor. The inly inputs are DVI and AVG or whatever. I was screwing around with the resolution settings inside my Nvidia control pannel and I noticed 2 different boxes, 1 says PC resolutions which scales up to 1920x1080 (native). Above that box is a box labeled HD, SD.

The only 2 options available under HD, SD box are 480p, 720 x 480
And the other is 720p, 1280 x 720 (recommended)

There is another option toward sthe bottom of the screen that says customize.
When you click it, it shows more HD and SD resolutions. There is a bunch of 1080i's and p's.

The one I am interested in is 1080p, 1920 x 1080 at 50 hz (32 bit)
Or 1080p 1920 x 1080 at 24 HZ (32 bit)
All these options are grayed out, the only way to enable these resolutions is to enable the box:

------------ Enable Resolutions Not Exposed By The Display ----------

Can I enable this and use the 1080p 1920 x 1080 @ 50 (or 24) hz (32 bit) and be safe and not damage
my monitor? Or is it simply not showing up because of my video card?

My current video card is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121348

  1. I also forgot to mention I have it hooked to my pc via dvi to dvi, this model does not have the HDMI input or the speakers, its just the monitor. I am also thinking if my quality would be improved if I use a cable of HDMI to DVI as the video card I listed has a HDMI out.
