I have a Dell monitor right now and I love it lol. But, I can't afford a Dell monitor. Do you think a 7600GT will be sifficient to run it at that odd resolution? Also, do you think it will be good for games, movies, and tv?

No, you will have resolution compatabiliy problems with a 20'' Moniter. Or so what I have heard. No idea to tell if thats true or not.

I have a 20.4 inch monitor (Samsung 204B) which I highly recommend. Runs on a standard resolution (1600 x 1200) and is very crisp since it is pretty much the smallest screen size you can get with that resolution. I love it!

On the monitor you posted, yes, but on the one I recommended, no. It is always better to get a standard resolution than a non-standard resolution because of compatibility issues.

As you can see, it works fine on my 7600GT.

..all I did was add it as a custom resolution on the nVidia control panel.. thats all it takes.. if the monitor says it can run that res, and the video card can.. it shouldn't have any issues at all.
