XPS 420 with a 24" 1080p Monitor

Yesterday I bought a Dell S2409 24" 1080p monitor for my PC. I have a Dell XPS 420 that I bought earlier in the year. Will it be able to run in the proper resolution, which is 1920x1080? It has a Q6600, 2GB RAM and 8800GT.

The resoultion is determined by your video card. Most newer cards will support that resolultion. What do you have for a video card.

Dell's manual for the 8800 GT does not list 1900x1080; however, it's very possible that the card will support that resolution with a newer nVidia driver update.  My 9800 GT does support 1900x1080 and it's basically about the same card as the 8800.

The 8800gt that came with my 420 does indeed allow 1920x1080. I actually use the 1920x1200, as my Gateway 24"  allows for that resolution.
