    Hi I was wondering what resolutions my monitor can handle. If I set it to a certain res and it displays it does that mean its ok to use that setting?

    Go to your manufacturer's website to be sure. Some monitors can handle higher than the specs documented, but it's best to use the settings the manufacturer states.
