It's dependent in both Monitor, the Graphics Card is limited by the max resolution that the monitor can handle.

You are saying that the obtainable resolution is dependent on both the graphics card and the monitor?

Therefore, when a person purchases a graphics card he should have in mind the size of his monitor? That sounds logical.

I have a Nvidia GTS450 and my monitor is a 32" Bravia.

But what do you do when you have an onboard graphics card which is apparently what Aravintharajan has?

If you could provide the make/model of the monitor we can give you the full hardware specification of it, including maximum resolution.

The on-board graphics will support any monitor for which an interface is available, ( Usually an analog or VGA plug).

You can set the resolution for anything the monitor is capable of, but the recommended maximum is the best.



If you try to use some videos or games etc. In full resolution, on a large monitor, using many of the available on-board graphics chips, then you will have problems, because the graphics chip is not powerful enough.

Getting the best display on your monitor

It doesn't really matter if its built in or a dedicated card, what you need to know is it's maximum supported resolution and what type of connector it has. Then when you buy your monitor you make sure that its native resolution is supported by the video card and it has a matching video connector. If the two don't match your picture quality will suffer. You can usually get away with it on a CRT monitor but LCD monitors are not so forgiving. If you are going to go big screen you more than likely want to get a good dedicated video card with lots of onboard RAM.

Your Samsung monitor 'native resolution' setup would be

1600 X 900 at 60hz in Win7

You get two monitor drivers from Samsung.
If you have connected with the DVi lead - use the 'digital' samsung monitor driver.
VGA lead = analogue driver
