Haven't been able to find a definitive answer for this. I am looking at downgrading from my Leadtek 6800GT to a 6600GT since I'm not into gaming as much as I used to be. Since the XFX AGP card has dual DVI has anyone here been able to successfully run an LCD at 1920*1200 over DVI?

I have the HPL2335

According to the specs on the XFX Web site, the card is capable of 2048x1536@85Hz so I don't see any reason why 1920x1200 wouldn't be supported. You may have to create a custom resolution through the display control panel but otherwise you should be fine.

I don't see why the XFX card would support higher resolution than your Leadtek 6800 GT if it has Dual DVI. It's not like it has Dual Link DVI. I'm 99% sure that if the 6600GT would support it, the 6800GT would do. The only cards with Dual Link DVI which would result in a higher resolution are the professional Quadro FX cards.

If this monitor requires 2 inputs with Dual Link DVI, then you won't be able to power it with a Dual DVI 6600GT.

Also, as far as I know, the highest resolution on LCD is 1600x1200. Higher number of pixels can be reached with blanking out or whatever it's called, which can drive resolutions like 1920x1200, so I'm pretty sure your 6800GT can do that.

1600x1200 is for 5:4 LCDs, 1920 x1200 is widescreen Dell 24'' and HP 23''/
