Question GeForce FX 5200, DVI, 1920x1080, Linux

Hi All,

I recently purchased a Sparkle GeForce FX 5200 and have been trying to get it to display in 1920x1080 under Vector Linux 5.8.

I have tried the following

(1) Four new Samsung monitors 23, 21, 24 and 27 (I'm currently at 27")
(2) Replaced the video card (based on recommendation from Sparkle that the DVI connector may be bad)
(3) Tried the video card in Windows 2000
(4) Tried all versions of the nVidia drivers including Sparkles' and the default nv Linux driver.

I can get 1980x1020 no problem with VGA, but with DVI can only achieve 1440x900.

I know there has been a lot of discussion about this card but I have not seen a definitive answer. Is there a way to get 1980x1020 with DVI and Linux or should I just move on.
