Default GeForce4; can not get full resolution.

I have a Samsung syncmaster 225uw with a default resolution of 1680x1050, however the maximum I can get is 1280x1024 which is annoying. Under windows I can get full resolution no problems.

System info:
Ubuntu 9.04 RC
Code:
don@office:~$ uname -r
2.6.28-11-generic
don@office:~$
video card info
Code:
don@office:~$ lspci | grep VGA 
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x] (rev a2)
NVIDA driver version (installed via ubuntu's restricted driver application): 96.43.10

What I've done to try to solve it: I've used xrandr (and gtf) to make and enter a new modeline, but i end up with an error:

Code:
don@office:~$ gtf 1680 1050 60

  # 1680x1050 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 65.22 kHz; pclk: 147.14 MHz
  Modeline "1680x1050_60.00"  147.14  1680 1784 1968 2256  1050 1051 1054 1087  -HSync +Vsync

don@office:~$ xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00"  147.14  1680 1784 1968 2256  1050 1051 1054 1087  -HSync +Vsync
don@office:~$ xrandr --addmode default 1680x1050_60.00
don@office:~$ xrandr --output default --mode 1680x1050_60.00
xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed
don@office:~$
Can someone help with this please?
I've tried everywhere/everything...
Many thanks.
