    Just wondering how I can get the most out of my new 19inch LCD. It's a
    Samsung 193v. The picture quality is quite good. Sharper than some I've
    seen in stores.
    Anyway, I noticed when I first used it that Control Panel -> Display ->
    Settings allowed me to select a Screen Resolution of about 2000 x 1600, but
    then when I applied this it defaulted back. Now the limit is 1280x1024. Is
    there a way to increase the resolution just a bit? I'd like to fit more
    windows on the screen. 1600x1200 would be good.
    Does this depend on limitations of my video card? I am using a ATI Radeon
    9200 SE 128Mb AGP (This is what I ordered in my system, though I don't see
    the name anywhere on the card - just a couple of Samsung chips).
    Would I get better monitor performance out of a better video card?
    please remove the obvious when replying.

    The maximum resolution for that monitor is 1280 x 1024 according to the
    product specifications.

    Is there any 19" LCD monitor with a higher max resolution than 1280x1024?
    Or is that a limitation of LCD?
    I am sure that my old 19" CRT monitor could do more than that.

    You must have more money than sense.
