Actually you can use 1366x768 but it takes some extra options on the
nvidia driver, something about "width mode validation". If you disable
it then it will accept widths that are not in multiples of 8's. My
Vizio has a native resolution of 1366x768 but I can only use it with
the VGA input, it explains in the manual that the HDMI input is for
720p or 1080i only.
