Default Resolution problems geforce 6800GT

Hi, i need help about resolutions

my card

Code:
$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV40 [GeForce 6800 GT] (rev a1)
My distro is ubuntu 7.10 amd64

and

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux bigGUY 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Sun Oct 14 21:45:15 GMT 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux
The driver nvidia i use is 100.14.19 compiled for ubuntu amd64

When i put the nvidia driver the max resolution without problems is 1280x800
(I have a wide screen) if i try 1440x900 then the bottom of the display isn't displayed (it's like it is out the screen in the bottom) and all the desktop is deformed.

But when i put the nv driver the max resolution is 1440x900 without any problems.

Why is that, why is it so difficult to have 1440x900 with the nvidia driver ?
