FX 5500 resolution 1920x1080


I didn't know where I should open this thread...

I have a system that has only PCI slots and a crappy onboard graphics cars with 4MB(Rage XL). I want to connect 2x24" monitors to it and use them with resolution 1920x1200. I found that the FX 5200, FX 5500 from nvidia and the ATI Radeon 7000 and 9200 can support 2 monitors and can support this resolution.

Does anybody know if any of them will be dropping frames with those monitors? I'm not planning to play any games with it, just 2D rendering in KDE/GNome/Englightment and some video playback under ubuntu most probably.

Thanks

Sorry, I guess I didn't state my question properly.

My question is not for the xorg, if it supports the monitor and the resolution. It's if the graphics card(Hardware) will be able to render on 2 screens at the same time without dropping frames.

Thanks

Solution found.

I bought an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro for PCI slot that supports 1920x1200 and can render 2D graphics in 2 24" screen at the resolution stated above.
