It doesn't solve the timing problem, just the wiring. As long as you
can get your software to program the video card for the right timing,
it will be usable. Note that this means that you won't be able to see
standard VGA settings nor text modes (e.g., the BIOS settings, DOS
command-line-only, etc.)

There are special video cards that can support a fixed frequency monitor
even in text modes, but I'm told that they cost about $200.

As mentioned previously, even with a "standard" video card, XFree86 under
Linux or FreeBSD can be configured for any video timing you need. However,
you won't be able to use the display outside of X.
