I don't know much about it either - I've been googling for quite a while -
but I don't really know what to search for. I read somewhere about someone
having a similar issue with a 30" TV, and the answer was the nvidia drivers
couldn't support that resolution yet (I don't think it was 1680x1050).

The nvidia-settings program seems very limiting with telling it what sort of
monitor I have. It's detected a 1600x1000 monitor, but won't let me tell it
that it could go to 1680x1050.

I'm also confused about whether or not I need to add a modeline to
xorg.confto adjust the size of the screen. I don't know much about it,
but I've read
reading the EDID can damage some monitors? Is it safe to experiment with
different modelines?
