Maximum Resolution of a 15" CRT Monitor

I'm considering using my old 15" CRT monitor as a second display. But beforehand, I want to know the max resolutions it's capable of. In the past, I always set it to 1024x768 @60Hz.

So I set the CRT up on an XP SP3 desktop, and opened the Display Settings:

Surprisingly, the 2048x1536 resolution is available with refresh rate up to 200 Hz. However, I dare not try those highest settings since I'm a bit skeptical that such an old monitor can pull it off.

So, what do you guys think? Are those settings feasible? And is it safe for me to try it?
