The 1680x1050 resolution isn't shown because your current TFT can't
display that resolution. Once you connect the new 22" TFT to your 6200TC
card, it will detect it's capabilities, and allow you to select all the
resolutions that new monitor supports (including 1680x1050).
No need to upgrade your videocard if you're happy with it's 2D performance
as it is now. It will probably struggle with rendering games to 1680x1050,
and a lot at that. (I had a loaner 6200TC 256MB in my Q6600/4GB
'Game-Machine' while waiting for the 8800GTX to arrive, and it's
performance with something like TF2 was abominable, even with all detail
