Default Linux quasi-newb and configuring XFree86

I got the drivers installeted correclty (I think? I get the quick nvidia splash screen when I start X) Now tho, I'm not really sure what to do with XFree86Config, I'll attach what I have but I can't figure out what to do to get my higher resolutions and color depth, I tried uncommenting 32 bit color depth but I was told (by an error) that I can't support it. Also, when I tried adding "1280x1024" to the screens section I Got an error that told me no screens were usuable. I don't know quite what to do.. I'm using a 128 mb GeForce FX 5600 and NEC LCD 1860NX monitor. Using a DVI cable if it matters.

I believe your horizontal and vertical refresh rates are incorrect. Refer to your monitor's manual here.

You have the hsync set to 31.5-50 and vsync set to 40-90. According to the manual, your hsync rate should be set to 31-80 (For use with DVI) and your vsync rate should be set to 55-85.
