Depends on the card and the drivers. I have a 7900GT running in 'Dual-View'
using 93.71 drivers - not recommended by nVidia for MCE BTW - that drives a
37" 1920 x 1080 display and a 22" 1680 x 1050 both at their native
resolutions. Works... but with some quirks
As far as running non-standard resolutions - ie: 1680 x 1050 or 1440 x 900
(16:10 aspect ratio) - some cards natively support them and some don't. My
7900GT supports 1680 but not 1440 (although one could create a custom
'timing' setup using nVidia's control panel applet). Best to research before
