Question Problem with nforce2 graphics and widescreen LCD

I am having a problem with my X display. My monitor is a Sceptre X7SV Naga, which is a widescreen LCD (16:9). The native resolution for it is 1280x768. I added what I believe to be a proper modeline to XF86Config for the 1280x768 resolution, and the "virtual" screen size indeed appears to be 1280x768, however the monitor is reporting that the resolution is 1024x768. So, what I believe is happening is that X really is trying to display in 1280x768, however the video card is shrinking it to 1024x768, then the monitor is strecting it back out. The result? REALLY ugly, funky-looking fonts. The video card is a Geforce4, the built in GPU on an nforce2 board (the one in the shuttle SN41G2).

Attached is the output of my /var/log/XFree86.0.log

Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Ahhh, digging further always helps. I ran startx with logverbose 5, and it printing some useful information about my monitor, including the right numbers for the 1280x768 modeline (different from what was printed in the manual).
