I recently bought a Diamond Multimedia Stealth S9250PCI256-ATI Radeon(r)
9250 card.  The purpose is to drive a Viewsonic 20.1" wide screen LCD
monitor.  It's connected via the DVI interface.

The problem is that the video card drivers don't seem to support the
optimal resolution for the monitor (which I think is 1680 x 1050), rather
the highest it goes is 1600 x 1200, so the letters look a little fuzzy.

Go to Viewsonic's site and find the specific drivers for the monitor.  We
had a big (30") ViewSonic monitor with similar issues, and this took care of
it.  Their site isn't the easiest in the world to use, but the drivers are
there somewhere.

This is for a Win98SE machine.

This may be your problem.  If the system is good enough to merit a nice
video card and monitor, why is it still on Win98?  An upgrade to XP will
likely go a long way to fixing the problem.

Diamond's tech support seems non-existent.  Numerous emails get have
gotten bounced back with a "user quota over limit" message, but I think
that that's for their entire email system, since I tried sending it to a
user that almost certainly doesn't exist and received the same error.

The tech support form on their web site did not elicit a response either.

Maybe the solution is to get a card from a different manufacturer.
