I have trid it on two monitors, one Dell 1028L, which supports up to 1280x1024 and this ViewSonic G75 f, which can go as high as 1600x1200 :), 

I had to include an xorg.conf file here, because the best I could get without one was 640x480 and still computer would freeze with that resolution :(

Thanks,

Antonio
