Default I can't use the full capabilities of my monitor

Hi folks,

I'm having problems with my monitor on freebsd amd64 system running 6.2.

The vesa driver uses 1024X768 while the Samsung 205BW monitor is capable of doing 1680x1050.

Observed here as well:

Using the nv driver is no option because it freezes my system and I have to turn the power down to start booting the system again.

Am I in a problematic situation now because:

1) Vesa isn't capable of using higher resolutions?
2) I can use NV because the driver isn't ok on my amd64 system
3) Nvidia doesn't provide a FreeBSD version of their nvidia driver on AMD64 based systems?
