SUMMARY: Screen Resolution vs. amount of physical ram in system

Looks like I was looking at the built in video fbs and instead should 
have run

#m64config -dev /dev/fb1 -prconf

Also, I have a DELL 20 inch flat panel screen hooked up to the
Ultra 10. It seems to want a 60Hz. rate. 

The video card has 8mb of memory.

I have an Ultra 10 with 128mb of ram in it.
I have an SUN PGX64 card in one of the pci slots.

./m64config -prconf

        640x480x85, vga, svga, 1152, 1280, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024
        1152x900, 1600x1280, 1920x1080, 1600x1000, 1920x1200, 1600x1200
Possible depths:  8, 24
Current resolution setting: 1152x900x66
Current depth: 8


If  I try and set the resolution higher than the default it says I don't
have enough memory but when I say yes anyways and reboot the machine it
always reverts back to 1152x900x66.

What is the highest resolution I can have in my current configuration??

./m64config -res 1600x1200x75 -depth 8
m64config: Cannot verify that 1600x1200x75 is a supported video
resolution for this monitor
m64config: Use 1600x1200x75 anyway (yes/no) ? 

Thanks Much.
