Monitor Resolution for 5970Follow

Just ordered my new rig from amazon, with ati radeon 5970 for GPU.
I am still using my 3 year old 19" samsung monitor. The monitor is still in good condition and the screen size, brightness and colors are all good. My only concern is that the Max resolution supported is only 1440 x 900, refresh rate 75hz.
Will there be any problem running FFXIV on 1440x900?
Though of getting the new 23" LED monitors but they seem too big for me, I usually get headache if playing game and looking at a big monitor screen close in front of me. 17-19" monitor seems the right size for me.
What exactly is screen resolution? Is the 1920x1020 resolution supported only by the bigger screen monitors in the range or 22"-30"? Can the latest 19" monitor support 1920x1020?

No you won't have a problem. It goes as low as 1024x768.

EDIT: Also I'll note I'm running on a 720p 22" HANNspree at 1680x1050. Which looks awesome.

1920x1080 is almost only supported on >21" monitors.
There are some exceptions but those are not regular consumer monitors and are very expensive compared with larger monitors.
FFXIV runs just fine at that resolution.
HD5970 is a bit over kill tho...
