Default Ubuntu Nvidia Geforce 210 Resolution on LG Electronics 37LF75

Hi I'm trying to get my resolution to match the resolution I use in Windows 7 which is 1768 x 992 (50hz).

Nvidia Geforce 210, LG Electronics 37LF75 - At the moment the top and bottom are both missing off the screen.

Everytime I try to adjust my xorg.conf file it hangs at boot. Not really sure what exactly I'm doing with it.

Maybe somebody could help.




xorg.conf

When I use the just scan mode on my Lg for some reason text looks squashed, letters are too narrow. I have however found a solution for displaying everything properly in 16:9 mode, I had completely overlooked the overscan compensation setting in nvidia settings, it is fine now.
