Unhappy Problem with Widescreen Monitor and 4:3 resolutions


I have the following configuration:
I use a GeForce 5200 FX with a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW, which is a widescreen monitor with a native resolution of 1680x1050. The gfx-card and the monitor are connected via analog-vga, because my card doesn't have an dvi connector.

As you all know, some software, mainly games, change the resolution of the screen, and I like to play fullscreen. BUT the black bars, which have to appear for a 4:3 resolution to be not stretched don't appear. I can do whatever I want. I think the monitor resizes automatically.

So. Is this Problem known? Is there a solution besides buying a new card?

Thank you for your time,
