GF FX5200 WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050)
Hey folks,

I have a legacy FX5200 in my Dell that I use for business stuff (programming, some graphics, etc.). I'm looking at a DELL UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1-inch Wide Aspect Flat Panel LCD Monitor which has a native resolution of 1680x1050. I have the version drivers which includes nView and appears to allow me to enter custom resolutions.

So... can I use this monitor with my 5200 or will I need to drop some bucks for a new card?

This is the max resolution that it supports. I think it will be ok. You don't need a new card if its jsut for buisness. That card is well within the limits. A chart with all supported resolutions is here. http://www.bfgtech.com/5200_redux.html

Thanks for the info, johnkeel105. I decided to plonk down some cash for a nVidia 6600GT 128MB 8x AGP card from Verto (PNY). While I use it primarily for business, maybe I'll throw the odd game in there to break the monotony...

I figure the 6600 can handle the resolution easily.

I finally got 1680x1050 resolution working with my XFX FX5200 and LG204WT. There were couple of things that I had to enable on xorg.conf before my display could sync to some valid modes.

I put these 60 Hz modelines - generated by gtf - under Monitor section:


Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Monitor0"
    VendorName    "LG"
    ModelName      "L204WT"
    HorizSync      28.0 - 83.0
    VertRefresh    55.0 - 75.0
        Modeline "1680x1050_60.00"  147.14  1680 1784 1968 2256  1050 1051 1054 1087  -HSync +Vsync
        Modeline "1440x900_60.00"  106.47  1440 1520 1672 1904  900 901 904 932  -HSync +Vsync
        Modeline "1280x800_60.00"  83.46  1280 1344 1480 1680  800 801 804 828  -HSync +Vsync
        Modeline "1024x640_60.00"  52.83  1024 1072 1176 1328  640 641 644 663  -HSync +Vsync
        Modeline "800x500_60.00"  31.33  800 824 904 1008  500 501 504 518  -HSync +Vsync
# Max PixClock 150 MHz

Other thing that had to be done, was to put some ModeValidation lines under Device section. I'm not sure if all those lines are mandatory but it works for me with these ones so I don't mind checking whatever option made it eventually click. I would think that at least AllowNon60HzDFPMModes wouldn't be needed.


Section "Device"
        Identifier        "Head0"
        Driver                "nvidia"
        BusID                "AGP:1:0:0"
        Screen                0
        Option                "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0"
        Option                "NoLogo"
        Option                "HWCursor"
        Option                "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
        Option                "RenderAccel" "true"
        Option                "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true"
        Option                "ModeValidation" "DFP-0: NoMaxPClkCheck, NoEdidMaxPClkCheck, AllowNon60HzDFPModes, NoMaxSizeCheck, NoVirtualSizeCheck"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Screen0"
    Device        "Head0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection    "Display"
        Depth      24
        Modes      "1680x1050_60.00" "1440x900_60.00" "1280x800_60.00" "1024x640_60.00" "800x500_60.00"

For the interested, here is my xorg.conf. It is a dual monitor xinerama configuration with first display at 1680x1050 and second at 1280x1024.

I hope this will help.
