If you are connecting via HDMI the videocard should detect the resolution of the "external" monitor, right in the regular display control panel for windows (not in CCC).

But integrated graphics isn't going to cut it likely.

The GPU needs the juice to push the pixels. Most low end laptops with Intel integrated graphics (or the "C" series AMD processors) lag and tear badly with HD. I have an Acer with a C-70 "HD" graphics option but like I said it is just an integrated graphics card, can't handle the image at all. Stutters, lags etc.

It doesn't take *much* to drive the panels however, I have a Sony VPCSC with a dedicated 6570M and it drives my 1080P Samsung 43 inch all the time.
