Default 1680x1050 resolution?

Currently running Fedora 7 . I recently installed a new Samsung Monitor (SyncMaster 204BW 16:9) . I have an Nvidia FX-5200 graphics card and am running the current Nvidia driver(100.14.11). The monitor manual says the best resolution to run is 1680x1050. Unfortunately i cannot get the driver to display this resolution. So far the best I can get is 1280x1024. the problem with this resolution is that the icons are all stretched and look terrible . I have tried a mode line with the 1680x1050 resolution but it just seems to ignore it and use 1280x1024. So I would appreciate any help in getting the 1680x1050 resolution to work. Here is my xorg.conf file

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Thanks for any help.
