That's good to Hear.  Saw a configuration with the AMD Radeon 7570 1gb that I thought was 1200 px max vertically?

I looked up the specs, and it seems that that video card, if is has only HDMI, then the HDMI res might be limited to 1200 vertical (at least per the specs), but if it has a DVI or Displayport connector, then that connector goes much higher.

And if it doesn't have either DVI or DisplayPort, and the HDMI is actually limited (it might not actually be limited), then you can replace it with a $30 video card that will support the higher res.
