The monitor will be fine. The real question is whether your video card can handle the specific resolution. The following resolutions are standard and are supported by pretty much any video card:
Note that NONE of the above resolutions have a widescreen aspect ratio. ALL widescreen aspect ratios are "nonstandard" in a sense. Most video cards will support nonstandard resolutions, given the appropriate driver. Some, though, you're out of luck.
Do you know what video card hardware you have? Do you know what driver you are using?
