Question about Graphics Cards
ECS 661FX-M motherboard. Bios Phoenix 6.00PG Ver. 1.01 is latest available for this model so I can't get onboard graphics upgrade to 1440 x 900. Only VGA available in BIOS setup.
Intel Celeron D
AGP3 slot 8x/4x support.
Would a Graphics Card with DVI be a solution?
Is an ASUS A9250/TD/128M AGP Graphics Card with DVI ouput compatible and would it solve my problem?
Yes, through bios you can only select VGA but it wont have any effect on what you see on windows, so let bios aside. Is through Windows Display properties that you select all the different resolutions... (RIGHT CLIC YOUR MOUSE OVER THE DESKTOP, SELECT PROPERTIES AND LOOK FOR THE SETTINGS TAB ON TOP, MOVE THE SLIDER AT THE MIDDLE TO SELECT RESOLUTIONS) in windows is where you should have the latest drivers from ECS (now PCCHIPS) for your motherboard's onboard graphics. 1440x900 is widescreen type resolution, only available rather recently by new monitors that support it and so I guess it wasn't included in your original motherboard driver CD. Then it's a must to have the new drivers installed and the monitor's plug and play recognized by windows in order to attain the desired resolution from the card.
Any new AGP video card will be far better than the onboard type. DVI is just a digital type of conector and doesn't have to do with the resolution selection, but it will make the images in the monitor show a little better since there is no signal degradation in digital transfer through the monitor cable.
