Default Ubuntu + Geforce 9800GT max resolution of 640x480

To start I've been having issues with my 9800 gt on both ubuntu 11.10 and backtrack 5 kernel version 2.6.39.4.

I have my computer set up to an LG HD tv at the moment until I get a replacement monitor and the max resoultion I'm able to get is 640x480 while the tv has a native resolution of 1600x1200. I've tried everything I can think of and can find online to get it to display 1600x1200 including xrandr (cvt --addmode --output --newmode etc..) and modifying my xorg.conf file. I am new to having to mess with the xorg.conf file and I removed all changes I made to post my clean conf file here. I'm using a dvi adaptder to a vga cable into the tv. Windows displays the resolution with no problems but I believe the issue is because the tv doesn't give an edid. Below are copies of my xorg.conf file and xorg.0.log file.

If the nvidia-bug-report is needed I will post that as well.
