Hook it up and see for yourself, all we can do is speculate.

LOL, it is fine. Upgrade to a new card? There is only one that is better... 24" have been out for 2+ years now.... old 7800GTs could run them.
Once again...

It WILL support the resalution (pretty much any card will), however it may lag in some games depending on the settings.

Well...I have the older 24 inch, the 2405 and at full resolution with a GTX overclocked I get around 40-45 FPS in the Lost Planet demo.
So as far as DX10 games are concerned you may run into a problem with only 320 megs of ram on the GTS

A 24" is about 68% bigger than the 19". There is about a 75% increase in pixels as well. I would say.... take the FPS you are getting now and muliply by 2/3.
