Maximum VGA output screen resolution

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 / 6400 with the ATI X1400 video card and
a 1680x1050 15.4" monitor. I am considering purchasing an LCD monitor
for use at home, as the 15.4" screen is too tiny.

How can I know what maximum resolution the VGA output is capable of?

For that matter, how do I enable it? I have been unsuccessful in
getting VGA video out of this machine in Debian-based (Debian and
Ubuntu) distros. Fedora enabled at least 1024x768 output, but I did
not try anything higher. I do not remember which driver I was using
with Fedora. With Debian I tried only the open source driver that
comes on the install disk, and in Ubuntu I tried both the open source
and proprietary drivers to no avail.

Thanks in advance.
