    I am using an older Mini (Mid 2010) 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo

    2 GB RAM with GeForce 320M 256 MB

    I just updated to OS X Yosemite v10.10

    Now, looking up the 320M, I find that it's max res is 2560x1600.

    My work monitor is 2560x1440, but my current resolution is somewhere lower than than - perhaps 1800 or something...but there's a noticeable difference with my Windows PC monitor (running right besides it) at 2560x1440.

    I noticed, when installing OSX, that you can choose what drivers to install, and what resolution to choose then.

    So how, on an existing install, do I add drivers to support the higher resolution? I hope I don't need to reinstall from scratch??!?

    Resolution Limit

    Resolution is limited by hardware and drivers for OS X aren't separate like in windows BTW. You can't increase your max resolution passed the set limit for your mac. You can lower it, but not raise past what is supported.
