ESXI 5.0 VM display resolution

Hi,
we are using ESXi 5.0 with VSphere. The VMs where "SBS2011" and "S2008" is running there you can set up display resolution to 1680 x 1050 but on the VM where XP is installed just up to 1152 x 864.

Why is it like this? Where can I change the settings so that I can set the display resolution of the XP-VM higher?

Thank you in  Advance!

The resolution is defined by how much Video Memory is assigned to the Video Card in the VM.

This can be adjusted if you Edit the VM Settings, and change the Video Memory for the Video Card.

An Example of Windows XP Screen Resolution of 2560 x 1600, by changing the Video Card Memory.

Different VMs have different default settings for the Video Card Memory.
