New 19″ Viewsonic Widescreen LCD Monitor

Update: See howto configure Viewsonic VG1930WM 19″ widescreen LCD for 1440×900 resolution under Linux.

I’ve been thinking to post about this for a while. My old 15" CRT monitor died three weeks ago. I decided to replace the faulty monitor with the 19” ViewSonic and I'm glad I did.

The monitor works with Ubuntu Linux with little tweaks in X.ORG configuration file.. It is a remarkable monitor with a decent price tag.

I’m using 1400x900 screen resolutions and I’m quite happy with this display unit. Now I can view MRTG graph, monitor routers and server on a large screen. At work place I’ve 24” widescreen LCD monitor.

However my desktop system is quite old. It has Intel Celeron 1.7Ghz with 512+256 MB RAM. I’m thinking to upgrade this box with AMD 64 X2 5600+, MSI Diamond motherboard with RAID 5, SATA II, 2 Gig DDR2, and 512 MB graphics card. If you know better hardware configuration please add your thoughts in comments!
