I don't think your card will have a problem. We (at The Open Learning 
Centre) use Samsung 2343BW monitors that are 2048x1152 with no problems. 
even on the inbuilt intel graphics chipsets that come with atom boards 
you can get Compiz running just fine.

My desktop has an Nvidia 9500GT and that is fine too.
