Samsung SyncMaster 170MP?  (That's the one with the built in TV 
tuner.)  I just set my PC to output 1152x864 and it was scaled 
(ugly).  Then I went into the menu and set it to normal display mode 
(instead of zoom), and sure enough, non-scaled window box 
(sharp).  Very nice.  I've used this panel with SS/2s and Octanes 
before, so I'm reasonably certain that it supports SOG.

As old as it is, they're bound to be cheap these days.
