Default Can't set correct resolution

My problem is that NVIDA is not accepting the resolution of my screen. I try to get 1360x768_60.00, but NVIDA sets it autumatically to 640x480_50. I have dual boot on my pc, and the resolution gets correct under microsoft XP.

My monitor is a Fujitsu-Siemens LCD-TV. 40inch
This is my graphics card controller: VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV37GL [Quadro PCI-E Series] (rev a2). Driver version of NVIDIA is 173.14.12

My OS is ubuntu 8.10 intreprid

Here is part of my xorg log file:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Assigned Display Device: CRT-1
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1360x768_60.00"; removing.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to validate any modes; falling back to the default mode
(WW) NVIDIA(0): "nvidia-auto-select".
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "nvidia-auto-select"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 640 x 480
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device CRT-1's EDID; cannot compute DPI
(WW) NVIDIA(0): from CRT-1's EDID.
(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default

And here is my xorg.conf:
