Default max res

How do I check what the max resolution my video card supports?
I suspect I am not seeing resolutions my monitor doesn't support.
I have a GeForce 6600 with 256MB and I am considering a new monitor that is native at 1680x1050

It will work, don't worry. I had a crt all the time on 6600gt @ 1600x1200. Those cards are capable displaying even higher resolution (I think up to 2046 x 1536).

The maximum resolution depends on whether you use D-SUB (vga) or DVI. In case of D-SUB the maximum pixelclock is more than 300MHz which is basically enough for 'any' resolution.

In case of DVI the maximum pixelclock is roughly 150MHz-165MHz (single link). It depends on the card what this limit is. This pixelclock when combined with a modeline that uses reduced blanking should be able to handle 1680x1050.

I use a DVI cable.
It works.
