Question New 22" Widescreen Monitor - Have GeForce 7300 LE - 1680x1050 Not Avaliable?

I bought a Dell desktop a couple months ago with an Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE graphics card. I recently bought a 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor (Bestbuy black-friday sale, $200, normal retail $500). The optimal resolution suggested by the monitor is 1680x1050, however, when I go into settings, the closest thing to that is 1600x1024. Is there any way I can get 1680x1050? I tried downloading drivers from the Nvidia website, but they didnt help..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go into your Nvidia control panel, and then to "Screen Resoultions & Refresh Rates". Should be a button near the bottom that says "Add", to add yourself a custom resolution. Just pop in 1680x1050, or whatever, and you should be set.
