I tried the following settings in xorg.conf this morning to no avail.  X 
rejected that mode saying it was not valid ....

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1920x1080_60i"; removing.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0):     "1280x720_60"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 720
(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default
(--) Depth 24 pixmap format is 32 bpp
