For general usage yes.
For gaming it was never really any good for gamin gin the first place so no.

Are you talking about a 2560x1080 screen or a 1920x1080 screen? You need the exact resolution as it's the total pixel count that matters rather than just the vertical lines so that TV style notation is unhelpful.

The 8400GS will support 1920x1200 and smaller screens screens, nVidia's website explicitly says so:
geforce.com/har…res

But it also implies it doesn't support dual link DVI required for a 2560x1080 screen.

Pretty much any graphics card, decrete or interaged made in the last 10 years will display at 1080p.
With both nVidia and AMD/ATI the first number denotes the series, the second the level/performance and the 3rd/4th are the performance and any letters, well they vary depending on series.
Generally for the second number between 0 and 4 is low and not suited for gaming, 5 to 6 is decent for gaming and mid range and 7 and above is generally high end. Of course it varies depending on series, last few seriesnVidia pretty much dropped the 9's so 8 is the highest and the 6's went from mid to high end.
