Exclamation i can only get 640x480

i have a geforcefx 7900gtx video card, i am running Fedora Core 6 w/ kernel "2.6.18-1.2849.fc6" and ive installed the latest nvidia drivers(non beta) as of Saturday November 18th 2006. and it will only display resolutions of 640x480 it lists 800x600 as an alternative resolution in the display settings menu. However selecting that, and restarting the xserver does not apply the changes, it just goes back to 640x480. heres a copy of my xorg.conf
