I just upgraded from 6800gt sli to 7800 gtx sli and 1680x1050 option in half life 2 disappeared. I use dell 2005fpw and 77.02 WHQL official driver

Is your monitor driver still installed correctly?

Go to Display Properties and check to see if it says your monitor brand and model or if it shows "Plug and Play".

The monitor is correctly recognized and I can use 1680x1050 in WOW

The reason is with HL2 which has a problem in recognizing the 7800gtx cards and properly setting the correct settings. The HL2 source has a problem with the 77.72 drivers and seeing that the 7800gtx is a existing video card. Right now it doesn't have that card in its database, or so. Have to wait for update from valve.
