You shouldn't have to do anything to set it up. Just make sure that the card is running at the max resolution your monitor supports, and make sure the refresh rate is set to 60 hertz.
For the best visual quality on that monitor, set your screen resolution to 1600x1200. You can set it to a lower resolution but you will see a drop in visual quality. Aside from that, it's a monitor...the end. :p
sounds great . 60 hz refresh , 1600 x 1200 resolutions . one question , i play older games , when i goes to the configure file , to change the res. , will i change them to 1600x1200.. it would be so cool to get an awnser for that one . thanks for the replies here . cheers .

I generally use 75Hz for my refresh. But on my new monitor, I can't seem to go above 60.
To answer your question. Yes, you do.... if you can.
Battlefield 2 only goes up to 1280x1024 I believe.
Old games are unlikely to support 1600x1200, though it depends how old. I'd set it to the highest one that isn't above 1600x1200 - because that's the highest the monitor can display.
Robert, if your new one is an LCD it doesn't actually have a refresh rate, so what it's set to is irrelevant; hence on most systems with an LCD screen it will be set to 60Hz and is unchangeable, unless something funky is going on. I have no idea why the option is even there let alone filled in, perhaps Windows would have a fit if it wasn't or something.
THANKS ALOT , to all who replied . have a fantastic weekend , happy gaming , cheers .
Need some help?

Ya, I am still in the dark ages.... 17" Dell CRT, supports 1600x1280 at 70Hz, but hurts eyes...set to 1280x1024 at 85hz, i'm happy. This monitor is old, got it from a pentium 2 333MHz with 128mb of RAM and a 4MB AGP TNT RIVA. Bought it for 7 bucks....couldn't have gotten a better deal....(could have gotten it for five, but I had 2 extra bucks, and I couldn't COMPLETELY rip off my neighbor....) That was all the money in my wallet at the time...

FYI - The native resolution on the vx2025wm is 1680x1050 , so that's probably what you'll want to run it at when possible. I don't think this monitor is capable of running 1600x1200.
Otherwise just use the highest resolution possible (that's less than the lcd native) in each particular game you play.
And enjoy that big monitor!
Doh, sorry john, Oblivious is right. I should know better than getting my specs from one of those price comparison sites. Thankfully Windows shouldn't actually let you set anything over that anyway.
