Default How to determine proper modeline?

Prior to switching to switching to the nvidia driver, I was using Xorg's nv driver. I have a Dell 2005FPW which is an LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1680x1050.

When using the nv driver, I was able to specify the ModeLine for that resolution. E.g., the xorg.conf entry was:

ModeLine     "1680x1050" 188.1 1680 1800 1984 2288 1050 1051 1054 1096
I've been unable to run at 1680x1050 when using the nvidia driver as it complains about the modeline entry. The specific error message is:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1680x1050" (bad mode clock/interlace/doublescan)
How do I go about determining a proper modeline entry?
