Old video card recommendation (?)
Sorry if these are stupid questions or insult anyone's intelligence...yeah, my gear is old...
I have an old Dell PC (OptiPlex GX240 ) with a "16 mb ati rage 128 ultra" video card, running XP.
This looked great through my 21" Dell DELL P1110 CRT monitor @ 1024x768 (there is a huge thread on this forum btw about that monitor & how to fix issues with it).
However now my old CRT monitor is having problems that I can't fix, so I bought a cheap/new Dell widescreen monitor, a E1914H, but the display looks like crap.
From what I've been able to figure out, this monitor looks best at "1366x768" (widescreen) but my graphics card only goes as high as 1024x768.
If I use this new monitor at 1024x768 I have to set the resolution to 4:3 for it to look OK, but then it is too small...again it looks HORRIBLE in widescreen, all stretched and not sharp etc.
I'd like to get a new/used video adapter that supports 1366x768 so I can match it to this monitor, but not sure what my options are (what will work in my old Dell PC?). Any cheap recommendations? Don't need it for 3D, gaming etc....
