Question Change resolution (need full hd on fx5500)

Good evening!
Recently install Ubuntu and drivers nvidia whereupon lost the ability to change resolution.
Began to search the forums - read that to change the Xorg. Doing a few tens of manipulation with this file - it was decided to ask a question on this forum.
And so.
I have Ubuntu 10.4.2 LTS, GeForce FX5500, drivers nvidia 173, connect the monitor DVI (LG W2363D).
What need:
Change the resolution to 1920x1080. (The maximum setting in at the moment - 1280x1024, which is very inconvenient)
My Xorg.conf
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Layout0"

In advance thank all for your help!
PS I do not live in the US why use Google Translater.
PSS On one forum read that this videocard only supports Full HD via VGA - it's nonsense, because in Windows XP I have no difficulty posed 1920x1080 (monitor connected dvi).
