    Help, I need some video card advice and opinions.

    I have set up an AMD A10-7850K APU on an Asus A88 Pro Motherboard and running Win7 Home Premium. For my monitor I have used my old Magnavox 26 in. HDTV Monitor. I bought it new when I built a computer using an AMD Phenom 9850 on an ASUS M3A32-MVP with an Asus EAH4770 Video Card. The Magnavox specs says, Supported Display Resolution up to 1280 x 768 60Hz, BUT I set it at 1440 x 900 and ran it for 6 or 7 years.

    With my new, A10-7850 setup it also shows 1280 x 768 and when I click on List all Modes it leaves a big hole and jumps from 1280x768 Tru-Color 32 bit, 60 Hertz up to 1920 x 1080, 256 Colors, 25 Hertz Interlaced.

    Any thoughts on what video card should I add to get it into the settings I am hoping to achieve?

    Seems like the first card worked at a higher resolution by fluke (improperly identified spec) and now it's identifying properly. Rather than try to figure out what graphics card might get that resolution back again, it might be better to upgrade the monitor to full on 19x10 or 19x12 wtih 32-bit 60 hertz progressive.

    I can't buy the fluke part, the 1440x900 is a little-bitsy box about 15 percent of screen and the 1280x960 is a great big box, takes about 85 percent of the screen. I just switched back to the old computer and my memory was correct. I have it on a Asus VE248H 24in. Both of the computers will work it at 1920 x 1080 and it looks the same regardless of the computer.

    Solved, I hope. I think the most sensible solution I receive was to purchase a AMD Radeon R7250 and set it up in crossfire. Hope it does what I want. Thanks to all.
