Quick question: Should this card support 1920x1080?
 
Quick question: Should this card support 1920x1080 (through DVI)?

http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p...FX5200-TD128LF

I read in a really old customer review that it didn't on windows but I wasn't sure if it's different with the new drivers and linux. I realize you can't say for sure because MSI makes the actual card but just give me your best guess so I know if it's worth the $20 to risk it. I really need a nvidia low-profile AGP DVI video card that can do 1920x1080.

When I click the link, I get an error saying that the product does not exist. However, I see "FX5200" in the link. I just want to warn you that any pre-GeForce6-series Nvidia card on Linux and any card at all running with a pre-180 series driver will have genuinely horrible 2D performance, especially at that kind of resolution. Optimally, a GeForce 8 series or better is necessary for good 2D performance in Linux on a display that large.

Unfortunately the motherboard im working with only has AGP. It looks like this will be a better bet: http://www.amazon.com/PNY-VCG62256AE...dp_ob_title_ce It's labeled as an HD card anyway, although I don't know if they only mean 1280x720.

In my opinion, you should definitely get the 6xx0 card. It will enable you to use the latest drivers, which will dramatically increase your 2D performance.

Until recently, I used a Geforce 4 MX 440 with 1920x1200, so I don't think the resolution will be a problem.
You should also consider a new PCI card if your system does not support PCIe, they also support VDPAU.
