Well yes, you're probably right, I think I'm just having difficulty with it.
I've specified 1680x1050 in xorg.conf, I'm using the latest NVidia drivers,
but I get

(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "MetaModes" "1680x1050"
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1680x1050"; removing.

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, so X just defaults to 1600x1000. When I use the
nvidia-settings program, the monitor is detected as a 1600x1000 monitor, and
it won't let me go choose any higher resolution than that.

Meanwhile, I rebooted the computer (to do something else!), and the aspect
ratios look fine now - I have no idea what has changed!
