TFT Screen on Old Graphics Card

Specs: Windows XP
Hello all, it's been a long time since i visited this forum and i hope i will get some help again..
So i have an old pc which i use it mainly for some games/movies and browsing the internet. My uncle wants to replace his old TFT (LG W1943SB-PF 19'') with a new one and told me that if i was interested he could give his old one. Now my pc has an old Proview 17'' CRT so it's a blessing having a new screen. The question is, can my graphic card (Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64 16MB) handle the resolutions of new TFT monitor? I was told that the LG's higher resolution is 1366 x 768 and the signal input is 15-pin d-sub analog.
Thanx for reading and hope i get some replies!

Yes the nVidia will output to the TFT but probably at a max of 1024x768 (possibly 1280x768). Also make sure you are using the latest available graphics Driver from nVidia as well:

The monitor should autosense the output from the graphics card.

The 15 pin D-sub abalouge connection wont be a problem as that is normal for a CRT monitor and will work just as well with an TFT monitor with the same input.

The resolution might be a problem. The TNT2 M64 supports a resolution of up to 1920 x 1200 @75Hz. If it does 1366 x 768 as well than your home and dry. Check the reolutions possible with the video card and if they match then fine.

Even if they dont then it will still work but wont look as good than as if you run the TFT monitor at its native resolution.
