Default GTX 460 Vesa Frambuffer @ 1920x1200

With my old 8800GT I used to be able to set my Framebuffer resolution to 1920x1200 using the value of

vga = 0x037d

But I just installed my new GTX-460 and that mode is no longer available so I ran
hwinfo --vbe and it gave me the supported resolutions of

This isn't that big of a deal but it seems odd that my almost 3 year old 8800GT could do it and the GTX-460 can't.

So does anyone know of a way to get 1920x1200 FB with this card?

Thanks
