Gainward Ti4200 card running 1440x900.
 
While my Gainward Ti4200 128 MB AGP card runs great at 1280x1024 resolution using the Windows XP Professional (SP2) native display driver, I'm thinking of getting a widescreen LCD monitor that supports 1440x900 natively. Problem is, the built-in WinXP drive doesn't support 1440x900; does this mean I have to install the current ForceWare driver to get 1440x900 support? :confused:

With the Ti4200 and older drivers, most widescreen monitors which list their EDID resolutions should just work or once you install a monitor INF file . I think some of the issues some people were with 2560x1600 or something like that which required a dual link DVI output. I think since the Ti4200 doesn't have any dual link DVI outputs, that resolution should be available with even older forceware drivers. I'm not 100% sure, but you can make custom resolutions in the nVidia driver control panel.

Actually, the monitor I want to get for 1440x900 (Viewsonic VA1912wb) does have an application you can download that updates the monitor definition file in Windows XP itself. Hopefully, that updated .INF file will allow me to use my Gainward Ti4200 card in 1440x900 mode. :thumbsup:

I should also note that if you install the current "stable" ForceWare driver (84.21), you can run the nVidia control panel configuration and set up a custom 1440x900 resolution so it works with the Viewsonic VA1912wb. :) By the way, there are so many configuration controls available in ForceWare 84.21 that it can confuse many users.
