I'm running 1600 x 1200 x 24 on my old Diamond Viper V550 (tnt 2)

There are problems:

1) It takes about 2 minutes for x-windows to start (with nv it was instant!)
2) Some of the opengl stuff is iffy with KDE, which I solved by reinstalling the original drivers (therefore sacrificing openGL support for now)

However, apart from that, it's stable at 1600 x 1200 x 24

You are welcome to see my config files, but I didn't do anything out of the ordinary..

/etc/X11/XF86Config: (non relevent bits snipped)
