Default Re: Claims to be right resolution, but isnt

Oh my, Im so embarrassed.

The resolution is 1920x1200. It appears to be that the fonts are just oversized, or something, making all my windows look like something I used to work on back in the 90s.

xdpyinfo tells me that with nv I am getting 75dpi, and with nvidia I am getting 152dpi. By my logic this should make my fonts (9pt) appear half sized on nvidia when compared to nv, not vice versa as is happening. Ive attached a screenshot taken under each driver to illustrate.
