powerbook g4 and external monitor?

I'm looking to get an external monitor, a Samsung 20" . It is 16:9 ,1600x900

I wonder will I have problem to get the optimized 1600x900 on it? I will be using the mirror mode.

I've been using an old 19" LCD 4:3(died). I used mirror mode, and the LCD at ~1280 x 1024.

I'm worry if I don't see the 1600x900 option in the display preference menu.

I used an external monitor on my Powerbook G4 for a while, and I'm fairly sure that the resolution was higher than the resolution on my Powerbook, so I think it will be fine.
