Default virtual screen size too small ?

I'd like to use twinview with a CRT at 1360x1024 and a TFT 1280x1024. Is this possible with 3d acceleration? I use a 7600 GS AGP.

When I add a modeline for this resolution the CRT doesn't let me scale the picture enough. Under windows this works fine though.

According to xorg.0..log virtual space is only 1360x1024. How can I change this?

Here is my xorg.conf:
Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier     	"BenQ FP91G+"
	Option         	"DPMS"

Section "Device"
    	Identifier     "Generic Video Card"
    	Driver         "nvidia"
#   	Option 	   	"MultisampleCompatibility" 	"true"
    	Option 	   	"TripleBuffer" 		"false"
    	Option 	   	"TwinViewOrientation"	"LeftOf"

Section "Screen"
	Identifier     	"Default Screen"
    	Device         	"Generic Video Card"
    	Monitor        	"BenQ FP91G+"
    	DefaultDepth	24
#     Option         	"AddARGBVisuals" 	"True"
    	Option         	"AddARGBGLXVisuals"	"True"
    	Option         	"NoLogo" 		"True"
	Option         	"TwinView" 		"True"
	Option 		"UseEDID" 		"FALSE"
#	Option 		"UseEdidDpi" 		"DFP-0"
	Option 		"MetaModes"   		"CRT-1: 1360x1024,	DFP-0: 1280x1024"
    	Option 		"HorizSync"   		"CRT-1: 30-95"
    	Option 		"VertRefresh" 		"CRT-1: 50-160"
	SubSection  	"Display"
		Depth      	24
        	Modes  		"1360x1024"	"1280x1024"
I guess everything in the monitor section is used by both displays?
Is the subsection display needed?


Games in fullscreen use only half of one monitor. How can I change that?
