The Dell OptiPlex 7020 is not an old computer. In fact, it is anti-old computer, because the onboard video hates my Hitachi SuperScan 812.




  • When connected to the Hitachi SuperScan 812, I only get a max of 1280x1024 -- and even then, it is a toss-up whether the image is clear or blurry.
  • When the resolution is set below 1280x1024, the image is upscaled to that resolution! Yuck! It's not noticeable on an LCD monitor, but on a CRT monitor, it is yucky.
