Need advice - Will this display work ok with my G4?

Hoping someone can give me some insight...

I have a Mac G4 Quicksilver 733Mhz with RAM upgraded (1.5GB) and am now purchasing a new display, the BenQ FP241W 24" flat panel display.

I am hoping if an expert can tell me if my current graphics card/display or sepcs are compatible with the BenQ display? My current settings are: (under "Displays" are the specs for my current Lacie Monitor)

Graphics/Display

VRAM (Total): 32 MB
Vendor: nVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x0110
Revision ID: 0x00b2

Resolution: 1024 x 768 @ 75 Hz

The link and specs to the product I am purchasing is here:

If anyone can let me know if this display will work and perform ok on my G4, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your time.

It'll work fine over VGA and ADC to DVI at 1920 x 1200.

Yes, your graphics card supports the resolution of the 24" display, so you should be fine.
