Default 1080p@60hz

Hi guys,
I've been trying for weeks to get my nvidia graphics gard (8800 GTS) to display 1080p@60hz.
With windows it works like a charm, but with linux, it just does not work.
I can only get 50hz refresh rate, although I am able to select 60hz in the nvidia-settings menu. Does anyone have some suggestions? Watching movies at 60hz simply judders.

I'm currently using ubuntu 9.10 and latest nvidia drivers, but I also tried Fedora 12.
My monitor Sharp AQUOS 32" is connected by an dvi to hdmi cable.

try modifying your xorg.conf manually and hardcode the 60fps refresh in the edid section

If you set the horizontal and vertical refresh manually in the xorg.conf, then it should work.
