www.monoprice.com, buy a DVI to HDMI cable. (I always suggest buying
it a little longer than you *think* you need)

Modes      "1280x720_60"
Modes      "1366x768_60"

should work fine. you may need to add all/any of the following as well,
        Option          "FlatPanelProperties"   "Scaling = native"
        Option          "IgnoreDisplayDevices"  "TV, CRT"
        Option          "ExactModeTimingsDVI"   "1"
        Option          "UseEDIDDpi"     "0"
        Option          "UseEDIDFreqs"     "0"
        Option          "ModeValidation"     "AllowNon60HzDFPModes,
NoEdidMaxPClkCheck, NoMaxPClkCheck, NoHorizSyncCheck,
NoVertRefreshCheck, NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck, NoEdidModes"

you can also try getting the EDID information and building a modeline.
using the 1.0-9746 drivers, launch X and run nvidia-settings (if you
want, you can run it from an ssh session wit the "-c :0.0" parameter),
and read the EDID output.
Before you ask, read the FAQ!
