But don't worry, I'm still gonna' re-install Kubuntu. I just fear that Vista will probably get the most use.
I'm glad you're liking Vista, hope it works out for ya. I finally got the whole resolution issue figured out on Ubuntu.

Just for future reference (in case you try out 7.04):

sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new <---- Installs the latest NVIDIA drivers
sudo nvidia-settings <------ Brings up the GUI NVIDIA Settings

Once you are in the GUI NVIDIA Settings, set everything to your needs and click on Save Configuration. Once you exit, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart X and voila, you have a custom resolution! Dunno about your 8-series card(s) but it should work. Let us know how it goes!
