So I just bought a new monitor - one of the Dell 20.1 wide-aspect flat panels. Should be sweet if I can drive it!

I can't find any shopping site that has enough info to verify that they have a cards that are compatible

- DVI-D
- WSXGA+

My motherboard only has AGP and PCI but I don't know whether I can run video through the PCI (I've always used the AGP port). Would a PCI video card work (MB is an old ASUS A7V).

DVD-D - most cards say they are DVI-I. Can I run it through DVI-D?

Finally, there don't seem to be many cards that advertise that the can do WSXGA+ Do I have to go to the

Also, can I run an 8X AGP card on a AGP Pro/4X slot?

I fear I have sent myself down the upgrade path.... Nice monitor though. If I can ever get it plugged in!
