Default Quick Question.

Well I recently bought my PC, and I was planning on using my TV as a monitor. I looked at my TVs specs and found out that the native resoultion was 1440x900.
However, it seems I am not able to set the resoultion to anything over 1024x768. When I do my tv goes blank and it says mode not supported. Does this mean that my tv can only go to that resoultion when being used as a monitor?

btw here is my tv:
Best Buy Canada Web Store: Home Electronics: Televisions: Samsung 19" Widescreen LCD HDTV** (LNT1953H)

Video card is in sig, and I am using VGA if that matters. Any help would be appreciated.

It says it supports up to 1360x768 via VGA or HDMI in the owner's manual ...
