- Advice on driving WVGA screen, please?

I plan to build a media centre type PC, mainly for DVD playback, around
a Gigabyte GA-7VM400AM motherboard. This has onboard graphics; a VIA
KM400 / VT8237 chipset, with a standard 15 pin VGA port . It also has an
AGP slot. The onboard graphics set does all I want with a normal
monitor, but this is poor for video. I have been told that it cannot
drive a WVGA (852x480?) screen, either through the straight 15 pin
connector or via a DVI adaptor, as the resolutions don't match. I have
updated the BIOS and drivers, but the nearest resolution offered is
600x480. The screen I plan to buy has both DVI & 15 pin connections.
Can anyone confirm whether this is true, and if so suggest a suitable
method of driving the display? Is there any way of altering the output
resolution with software, or must I get a new graphics card, and if so
any suggestions? Must be low power (no fan) and cheap - I don't want
high-power gaming, just DVD playback.
