I have a friend who outputs at 1280x768 via a DVI ADD2 card on i945G and
has no problems.  It's not so much the oddity of 1920x1080 as a
resolution that concerns me but rather if it exceeds some limit of the

I know that the graphics processor is able to handle this resolution no
problem, and I know that DVI specification allows for 1920x1080 at 60Hz
over single link DVI (thanks Wikipedia), so all signs point to the i945G
supporting this, yet I am seeing some sources say that 1600x1200 is the
max resolution for DVI for i945G.  I'm seeing other sources that say
1920x1080 is (notably the the Apples based on this chipset).
