Default Hi Def LCD Monitor Resolution

Hi, my mate said all LCD monitors'll display 'Hi-Definition'...I don't know what the exact definition (hah, definition, get it?) of that is, apart from being a higher resolution and therefore crisper.

Still, point is, will i be able to watch hi-definition stuff on my Viewsonic VX924? As it's a 19" LCD. Cos, on the advanced graphics settings, it won't display a resolution more than 1280x1024????

AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

When you say, "hi-definition stuff" do you mean like t.v.? Cause you'll need a hi-def t.v. tuner to watch hi-def (hd) on your comp. Hd isn't the same thing as a regular t.v. tuner card. This one here: http://ati.com/products/hdtvwonder/index.html will do the trick.

So my 19" LCD monitor will display high definition if i have the right hardware tuner etc...I won't have to change my monitor is the main thing???

...Also, is it possible to plug an XBOX360 into a LCD 19" monitor and play in hi-def, or is that pushing my luck??
