    What video cards will do widescreen??

    Which cards have resolutions of 1024X600 or 848x480?? I've looked all over the net and can't find a darn thing.

    Thanks,
    Landon

    I have read a post by ZIN (?) that has used his desktop Geforce 2 card to get the 848X480.

    Good question though. I am interested in hearing more about it as well.

    Will no card support these resolutions by default? Is there a tutorial somewhere for powerstrip?? It sounds easy but I know how those things can go sometimes. Thanks Guys, I just don't want to buy a card and then find out it won't work.

    Thanks,

    I believe Tvtool might be able to help with this.

    The radeon 7000 upwards will support these without the need for powerstrip. Its just makes it easier that's all.

    The bit about only genuine radeons working is rubbish as my 7000 sdr no-name brand worked no probs by changing the windows registry.

    So this one will work? http://www.dvcentury.com/Merchant2/m...de=96-230-9205

    PAL/NTSC will work for the output to the Lilliput touchscreen tv right?

    THanks,

    I have nVidia GeForce2 MX200, Win2K, and driver form CD, 848x480 is an option in settings tab, my Lilliput shows great picture on this resoluton, but remember to set monitor vert. frequency to 75 Hz (on my Lily 60Hz looks crapy, 85Hz does not show anything).

    but I need the same on M10K mobo :-((( I will brobably through it out (sell) and get some MictoATX with nVidia
