Beats me.

IIRC, I just chose the worst-looking one (lowest res, slowest), and it
worked with the old NEC monitor.  I probably tried the next-worst, too, but
it was 3 years ago, and I don't really remember.

I don't remember it rejecting any choices, either ....

After you get the monitor set up, the real fun begins: getting it to boot.
