Well, here it is. I just did another fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04. So, the default video driver (VESA, i guess) is loaded and it detected my resolution as being 1680X1050. All OK. But I want to use nVidia drivers, for Compiz and other stuff. [...] the resolution becomes 640X480, and no configuration at xorg.conf seems to resolve it. I tried setting hsync and vsync accordingly to my monitor's specifications, tried only showing 1680X1050 as possible resolutions, nothing worked [...]

I have this xorg.conf right now:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier    "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Default Screen"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
    Device        "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection "Display"
        Virtual    3046 1117
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier    "Configured Video Device"
EndSection
So, anything I should do before activating the nVidia driver?
Yes. Delete your xorg.conf. or, better:
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.save
Then (re-)boot, with your desired display connected.
The "Virtual 3046 1117" shows, that there is a lot of cruft around in your system.
Then, if it doesn't work, let's see your /var/log/Xorg.0.log of this session without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf
