Need an AGP video card with 1440 X 900 Screen Resolution. I just bought a Rosewill R905E-W Wide-Screen LCD display for my desktop computer. My video card doesn't seem to support that resolution. Everything looks stretched. Now I'm having a hard time finding an AGP card that supports that specific resolution. Specification sheets only seem to quote what the maximum resolution is. Any ideas?

You can get a tool like PowerStrip which will allow you to construct custom resolutions that match the screen.  No need to buy a new card.

Ok. I installed it and I'm trying to create a "custom resolution", but it is grayed out. Do you know why it would be grayed out?

What's your video card?
Good and bad news....  There are a few vid cards that support this res.  The good news, there are some lower than $300, and there are some AGP...  The bad news is that the ones below $300 are all PCI-E, and the AGP ones are all +$500  But heres an AGP one that I found: http://www.nulime.com/p64547/cat2650/Graphics-Video-Cards/Miscellaneous-AGP/Creative-Labs-3D-Labs-WC-Realizm-100-256MB.html
Any recent nvidia card (and that include the cheap 6200) supports this resolution without problem.
And from some foruns ( http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.cfm?catid=31&threadid=1803702 )
It seems even Intel integrated graphics can handle it, and some older 5900 nvidia cards, and ATI 9800.

My video card is a cheapy. It's a Rosewill RX20L-64N with Xabre 200. I just don't think I can hit that resolution with this card with or without Powerstrip. I'm thinking I should just go get an Nvidia card. I tried Powerstrip on my home machine last night with a Radeon 7500 in it, and it let me customize to that resolution. But I've heard that Nvidia drivers have custom resolutions capability built right in.
That resolution is becoming "standard", as many laptops use it.
With any Nvidia or ATI card, you should have no prpblem setting it - either directly from their control panel, or - as a last resort - using Powerstrip.
