Default Caed specs?

Greetings all.

I have searched Google,this forum others trying to find some specs about my graphics card. I have an Albatron 6600LEQ PCIe 256MB passively cooled card. What I am looking to find is the maximum DVI resolution.
I tried to contact Albatron, they never replied.
Im looking to upgrade my old CRT to a widescreen DFP. Im looking to get a DFP with a native resolution of 1680x1050 or possibly 1440x900. The higher res is the preference.
This card works very well in Suse 9.3, if anyone is interested.
I hope someone can assist me with this.

Thank you in advance for your time and effort with this matter,

Omen

Most likely your card features a single link DVI interface which I think allows a pixelclock of upto 150 or 165MHz. This should be enough for running a widescreen panel at 1680x1050. Note that you will need a modeline with reduced blanking (just search this forum) to get it working.

I am using a 1920x1200 DFP with a 6600GT card. This requires a 154 MHz pixelclock, something my previous FX5200 card could not deliver. But when I set the clock to 135 MHz I still got a picture at 52Hz refresh, contrary to the specs of the panel which said "60 Hz only".

What I would find worrying is passively cooling a 6600. Even my 5200 got uncomfortably hot. It will depend on the amount of air circulation in your case. Watch the chip temperature using nvidia-settings...
(anyone know about a method of monitoring this value using the usual monitoring tools such as gkrell?)
