Default can't get 2560x1600 (freebsd 7.0, nv, 8500gt, hp lp3065)

I am unable to get X to display 2560x1600. The best I can get is 1280x800. I've constructed a xorg.conf file with the proper modelines (I think), but this doesn't help.

Here's the configuration:

Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-M51GM-S2G
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2000 MHz
RAM: 4096 MB
Video Card: MSI NX8500GT-TD512EH
Monitor: HP LP3065
OS: FreeBSD 7.0 amd64 (NOT i386)

Note that I am using the nv driver because the NVIDIA Proprietary Driver doesn't support amd64.

The OS had been freshly installed from the ISO images. I updated the nv driver from ports (xf86-video-nv). Both the driver distributed with the iso install and the updated driver exhibit the same behavior.

This card and monitor clearly should work OK since I have the exact same configuration (MB + CPU + RAM + video card + monitor) on another box running win xp perfectly.

I've appended the relevant files below (xorg.conf, the xorg log (attached), and output from xrandr -q after x is up).

Thanks so much for any help.


Here is the xorg.conf file (note that I tried a couple of modelines in the monitor section).
