Red face Can't set refresh rate

Hey guy's i've been wracking my brains on this and read endless thread upon thread and for the life of i can't get the correct refresh rate for my screen. I've got a iiyama vision master pro 510 22" crt monitor and a Geforce4 Ti 4600 platinum and i can't get the refresh rate to go above 75Hz @ 1600x1200 on Fedora7, if i use the standard drivers it works fine but can't play games then , i've followed the tutorial on installing the drivers which do work as unreal tourny runs smoothly.

Here's my xorg.conf:

You must add "1600x1200_85.00"
to your modes:
Modes "1600x1200_85.00""1600x1200" "1600x1024" "1440x900"..........

thanks for the reply added 1600x1200_85.00 to the modes and still it's only allowing me to set to 75Hz, thought i'd better mention that i'm getting the refresh rate from the OSD of the monitor.
