Default 185.18.14, GTX 275 - only blank screen after starting X - monitor detenction problem?

I recently bought new computer with Gigabyte GF GTX 275 and I'm having problems getting it to work properly on Linux. First I installed the 180.60 driver and it worked, but I experienced annoying screen flicker. So I upgraded to 185.18.14. Now I'm getting only blank screen when starting X (my monitor says 'no input' and shuts down). I'm attaching the nvidia-bug-report output.

It's strange because I sent a email to Nvidia support and my interlocutor answers me that the latest driver (185.18.14) works correctly with the GeForce GTX275...

Her answer :

Did you ask them in the e-mail about this specific problem, or just whether the drivers support GTX 275? Also, as I said the earlier 180.60 does work, but the screen flickers all the time.

EDIT: I've just made more tests, and noticed that the screen SOMETIMES comes up with the 185.18.14. It looks like there's a problem with monitor detection. Funny thing is that it also happens in Windows 7 - but i thought it was just some 7 RC's bug. Here's xorg's log when it doesn't work: http://pastebin.com/f46a23d8e and when it does: http://pastebin.com/f16b036dc

And here's a diff between them:

I only asked if the drivers support GTX275 and not a specific problem. Because i want to buy this card.

If you are the same bug with Windows 7, try to change the card thanks to guarantee.
I don't have this card but it's maybe a a manufacturing fault.

Berillions,

if you haven't an answer by a Nvidia guy in the forum, try to sent an email directly to Nvidia.
