I just purchased a new Dell XPS 410 N with Ubuntu 7.04 pre-installed
which comes with the nVidia GeForce 8300 GS.  I'm trying to use this
machine with a 22" ViewSonic VX2235wm monitor running natively at
1680x1050.  After going through "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" gdm
successfully boots at the correct resolution, however there is slight
flicker and fuzziness (which makes me feel like I'm going blind).  I
have tried all of the suggestions from Ubuntu (
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FixVideoResolutionHowto ) without
luck.  There doesn't appear to be a binary driver from nVidia supporting
this card either.

When I try connecting the monitor using a DVI cable, I get a blank
screen and the monitor reports "Out of Range H 65 KHz, V 60 Hz"
(although both of those freqencies are within the manufacturer's

I'm I SOL here?
