I can't read the model number of the monitor but it has a sticker dated
1998.  Even though it is an older monitor it should be able to give
better resolution than I am now getting.  On the that machine with the
Geforce 6150 an even older Compaq monitor used to work.

The video card is a built-in GeForce 6150 GT with BusID "PCI:0:5:0".
