I'd like to know that too and asked this question when I installed a
similar system. Back then the answer was, it doesn't work. Did you find
anything else in the meantime?

No way because the G550 can't do more than 1280x1024 at the DVI port.
Analog yes. BTW for 1080p/i you'll need a _real_ fast CPU because the GPU
doesn't do a lot of decoding work...
