Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Are you stating that you are not able to get the native resolution for your monitor? I am not sure what you mean by excellent resolution. If you are you can try installing your ATI driver with the Hardware Drivers in the Admin menu. This is the method I use and I am always able to get the correct resolution for my Monitor. I have a 20" Wide screen monitor and am using ATI Radeon 9600SE video card/AGP.
