Default EVGA Geforce GTX 280 doesn't support 1440x900?

Just installed my new EVGA Geforce GTX 280 and downloaded/installed the drivers for the 200 series off of Nvidia's site. I went to correct my desktop resolution and I notice that 1440 x 900 is not an option - the closest thing I have available is 1360 x 768. Anyway to make 1440 x 900 resolution available or is this just an oddity with this particular card?
