I tried this, but it didn't make any change.

This did it! Now I have the full 1920x1200 also with the Nvidia driver.

When booting into WindowsXP on the same computer I also have the full 1920x1200 display. So it seems as if the Nvidia Linux driver is a bit too pessimistic about the GeForce 5200 abilities.

Anyhow, thanks for a very speedy and helpful answer!
